A child has allegedly been hit and killed by a campaign RV in Queens.

Details are still coming in, but emergency officials said the accident happened around 3:30 p.m. at Woodhaven and Rockaway Boulevard in Ozone Park.

The RV has "Mike Ricatto Special Election 32nd City Council District" written on the side.

Ricatto is a Republican businessman running for the seat vacated by Joseph Addabbo.

NY1 has reached out to Ricatto for comment, but so far have not heard back.

NY1 has a crew on the scene and will have more information as it becomes available.
