PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A boy suffered serious injuries when he was hit by a pickup truck in northeast Portland Monday.

Portland police said the 12-year-old was crossing Northeast 122nd Avenue near Multnomah Street when he struck by a 2016 Toyota Tacoma just before 12:30 p.m.

Investigators said it appeared the boy ran into traffic without warning and ended up in the path of the pickup, which was driving south on 122nd Avenue.

When police and medical crews arrived on scene, the boy was unconscious but then regained consciousness, police said.

The boy was taken by ambulance to a Portland hospital. Police said he is expected to survive.

Police said the driver of the Tacoma remained at the scene and was cooperating with investigators. Police said they don't expect to issue any citations.

The Multnomah County District Attorney's Office will review the findings.

Traffic in the southbound lanes of 122nd Avenue was being restricted because of the incident, but traffic was getting through in the center lane, according to police.
