— A Cumberland County boy was in serious condition Tuesday after a van hit his bike and dragged him about 30 feet Monday night.

Ten-year-old Kunal Patel suffered head injuries when the van slammed into his bicycle. The state Highway Patrol says the boy was trying to cross Dunn Road, near Dobbin Holmes Road. The driver hit the brakes and tried to swerve, but couldn't steer clear of the bike.

No charges have been filed.
