An 8-year-old boy riding a bicycle was airlifted from Landmark on Monday morning after being struck by a van driven by a 70-year-old male from Blumenort.

The collision occurred on First Street West, near to a marked pedestrian crossing in the community’s south end. It was reported at 8:40 a.m., police said.

A spokesperson for STARS air ambulance said the boy was taken to hospital in unstable condition.

The parking lot of the nearby Prairie Rose EMC Church was used as staging area for a ground ambulance transfer to the waiting air ambulance, which departed shortly after 10 a.m.

An RCMP spokesperson said on Monday afternoon that the boy remained in critical condition.

Alcohol is not considered a factor, police said.
