    A 6-year-old boy was killed and his mother was injured when a car jumped a curb and hit them as they walked on a New Jersey sidewalk, officials said Sunday.

    The 2013 Lexus, driven by 21-year-old Shang Zhen Huang, struck the mother and child as they walked along Raritan Avenue in Highland Park shortly after 3 p.m. Saturday, according to the prosecutor’s office and police.

    Chaim Kraus was pronounced dead at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick. His 37-year-old mother was hospitalized in critical condition.

    Huang was arrested on charges of aggravated assault. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had a lawyer who could comment on his behalf.
