A 16-year-old pedestrian was injured early Monday after being struck by an SUV in Pontiac, the Oakland County Sheriff's Office said.

The youth was in the center lane of Walton when a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer approaching Perry hit him at about 6:20 a.m., investigators said in a statement.

The boy was listed in stable condition at McLaren Oakland hospital, according to the release.

The 40-year-old driver stopped at the scene and cooperated with authorities. Alcohol and drugs were not believed to be a factor in the incident, sheriff's officials said.
