SCOTLAND, Pa. (WHTM) -

A 10-year-old boy suffered serious head injuries when he was struck by a vehicle while walking to his Franklin County home.

The boy's grandfather said Dustin Farner, a fifth grader at Scotland Elementary School, was flown to Penn State Hershey Medical Center from the accident Tuesday in the 2000 block of Black Gap Road in Greene Township.

Farner was struck around 4:30 p.m., not far from his home. 

State police said the driver who struck the boy stopped and tried to help him. Troopers are still investigating, but said at this point they do not believe the driver was speeding or under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Black Gap Road was closed for about an hour.

A hospital spokesperson on Wednesday could not release the boy's medical condition, but said he was still being treated.
