CLERMONT, Fla., Nov. 1 (UPI) -- Police in Nutley, N.J., and Clermont, Fla., said a child was killed in each location on Halloween after being struck by a sport utility vehicle.

The Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel said Sunday that a 9-year-old boy, whose identity was not reported, was struck by a sport utility vehicle Saturday night while walking to a Halloween event at a local church.

Clermont police Capt. Jon Johnson said the girlfriend of the boy's father was also hit by the vehicle, but only suffered minor injuries. Her identity, as well as the identity of the SUV driver, was also not reported.

The (Newark) New Jersey Star-Ledger said a sport utility vehicle hit two children Halloween night in Nutley, killing a 9-year-old girl.

Authorities said the accident, which also left a 3-year-old boy in critical condition, occurred as the children were crossing a street while out with family and friends.

The 44-year-old SUV driver was treated for trauma after the New Jersey accident, police told the Star-Ledger.

The identities of the driver, who has not been charged in connection with the accident, and the two children were not reported.
