A 10-year-old was taken by ambulance to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital on Friday after he was struck by a car while crossing the street a short distance from the Springs School.

Lorena E. Armijos of East Hampton, 43, who was driving a 2018 Jeep S.U.V. shortly after 11 a.m., told police she thought she had been waved through an intersection by the traffic control officer posted at the crosswalk at Springs-Fireplace Road and Gardiner Avenue, near School Street. She proceeded through the intersection but struck the boy, whom she said she did not see. The boy complained of pain in his upper leg and hip.

Ms. Armijos had two children in her vehicle, ages 5 and 10. Police charged her with three traffic violations, including one for allegedly not having a valid driver’s license.
