BROOKFIELD — An 11-year-old boy was killed when the vehicle he was riding in crashed into a parked flatbed tow truck in Madison County Monday evening, according to the New York State Police.

Troopers said Abner G. Padilla, 29, of Utica, was southbound on Route 8 shortly before 6 p.m. when his 2003 Subaru Forester crashed into the back of a 2001 Ford flatbed tow truck, which was partially parked in the roadway with all lights activated.

A backseat passenger, 11-year-old Nelson G. Padilla, of Pennsylvania, was thrown out of the vehicle, troopers said. The child was pronounced dead at the scene.
