A 6-year-old boy was flown to a nearby hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries Wednesday morning after being hit by an SUV in Odenton.

Justin Mulcahy, public information officer for the Anne Arundel County Police Department, said police responded to a call at 7:43 at the intersection of Blue Water Boulevard and Roff Point Drive, according to preliminary information. The child had been hit by a Chevrolet Avalanche, Mulcahy said.
