A 10-year-old boy is recovering at Doernbecher Childrens' Hospital after he was struck by a car in a crosswalk accident in East Portland Thursday.

The boy, who's name has not been disclosed, was apparently crossing 82nd Avenue with his family. Police investigators say the family had reached the center median island, when the boy stepped out into the street.

Police believe alcohol and drugs were not a factor. The driver is cooperating with the investigation.
