MILL BASIN - A child is recovering at Coney Island Hospital after witnesses say a dollar van struck him in Mill Basin Sunday.

Residents on E. 52nd Street say they heard a loud crash and rushed outside where they saw the child on the ground. One woman says the van did not appear to be speeding, but the street is often used by dollar vans. Officials at Coney Island Hospital say the child may have a broke shoulder, but is expected to recover.

Homeowners say they have been unsuccessful in efforts to turn their street into a dead end.
