WESTWOOD, OH (FOX19) -

A 12-year-old boy is fighting for his life after he was struck by a car in Westwood Thursday morning, Cincinnati police confirm.

The child has life-threatening injuries and is undergoing surgery at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, police said in a tweet just after 8:30 a.m. 

Cincinnati police say the child is currently listed in critical condition.

Montana Avenue will remain closed near Mustang another hour or two, they wrote.

Police and firefighters were called to the 2500 block of Montana Avenue just after 6:30 a.m. for a report of a person down in in the road. Moments later, a second report came in that the person down was a young child and a crowd was gathering.

Police say the boy was crossing the street in front of a stopped Metro bus on his way to catch another bus to school. A car trying to pass the stopped bus hit the boy.

The driver of the vehicle is cooperating with investigators, police said in a tweet.

The driver has been taken in for questioning by police and they say there may be charges pending.
