BERLIN, Md.- Deputies with the Worcester County Sheriff's Office say a 2-year-old boy is in the hospital after being struck and injured by a vehicle in Berlin.

Authorities said the incident happened shortly after 7 p.m. Sunday on Sinapuxant Road in Berlin. According to investigators, the child was playing in his yard when he crossed onto Sinapuxant Road, east of Seahawk Road. Police said that is when he was hit by a vehicle. 

The driver, 26-year-old Thomas Purnell Jr., of Berlin, took the child and his mother to a local hospital for treatment. The child was then transported to Johns Hopkins Hospital for further treatment of serious injuries. 

Deputies cited Purnell for driving with an expired license and driving without insurance.
