A 12-year-old boy has died in hospital after being hit by a car on the Sunshine Coast earlier this month.

The boy was riding a scooter when he was struck by a Mazda Ute on September 3 along David Low Way in Bli Bli.

He was airlifted to the Queensland Children’s Hospital where he has been in a coma for the past two weeks fighting for his life.

Police have confirmed he passed away yesterday.

The driver of the Ute, a 27-year-old Bli Bli man, was served a notice to appear for drink driving after returning a reading of 0.069.

He will appear at the Maroochydore Magistrates Court on October 30.

Forensic Crash Unit investigations are continuing and additional charges are expected to be laid.
