The incident initially happened around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday.

A witness said she saw a car drag the boy — believed to be around 10 years old — and pin him under a car on Columbia Road near Intervale Street.

"He was pinned underneath this car when the car hit him and hit him under there," Nicole Montaque said. "I was the one who took him out from under there. There’s blood all over me and my jacket."

The boy is recovering at an area hospital.
