(Lancaster) -- Police say a 10-year-old boy died after he was struck by multiple vehicles while crossing a Lancaster County street, and one of the vehicles left the scene. 

West Hempfield Township police say the boy and a 17-year-old girl were struck while crossing from the Silver Spring Cemetery parking lot toward Saint Mary's Coptic Church.

The boy was thrown into the westbound lane, where he was struck once and perhaps twice by vehicles. One remained at the scene but witnesses said a black sport utility vehicle that struck the boy didn't stop.

The girl was knocked to the side of the street, and her condition wasn't immediately available.

Her 21-year-old sister, who had a cut that may have been due to debris, was treated at Lancaster General Hospital and released.
