FAIR LAWN, NJ - Social media erupted in outgrage after an area news photographer posted photos of a tragic accident in which a 12-year-old boy was struck and killed by what appears to be a Bergen County Sheriff's vehicle on Route 208 near Fair Lawn Avenue.

According to several media reports, the young man was struck while walking with his brother and friends. The photo shows the vehicle and a white sheet, which many believe is covering the young man. There were calls for the photographer to take down the photos, while others said to leave it up as a lesson to anyone trying to cross Route 208 on foot.

The Bergen County Sheriff's Office and Fair Lawn Police will most likely issue reports in the hours to come.
