A 16-year-old boy from Boalsburg is in critical condition after being struck by a car on Monday night.

State College police said the crash happened at about 9 p.m. when the boy was riding a bicycle on Shingletown Road near Mountain Road and was struck by a Subaru SRX driven by a 21-year-old male from State College.

The bicyclist was taken by Life Flight helicopter to UPMC-Altoona, where he remained in critical condition as of 11 a.m. on Tuesday.
