Durham Regional Police say a 14-year-old boy has life-threatening injuries after he was struck by a vehicle in Oshawa on Monday night.
Emergency crews were called to Stevenson Road North at around 8:05 p.m.
Police told Global News they believe the teen was on a motorized vehicle, possibly an e-bike, when he was hit.
“A male was found lying on the roadway next to an off-road motorcycle and appeared to have sustained serious injuries,” police said in a statement issued Tuesday morning.
The 14-year-old, from Oshawa, was treated at the scene by paramedics and Oshawa Fire.
The boy was then airlifted to a Toronto trauma centre via air-ambulance. As of Tuesday morning, he is still in life-threatening condition.

The driver did not remain at the scene.
Police said witnesses in the area reported hearing a loud bang and saw what appeared to be a white sedan fleeing the scene. The vehicle was last seen driving southbound on Stevenson Road North towards Taunton Road.
Stevenson Road North was closed between Conlin and Taunton roads for the investigation, but the roadway has since re-opened.
