D.C. Fire officials say the boy -- who was walking to Bunker Hill Elementary School -- was struck around 8:30 a.m. Friday as he crossed Sargent Road at Emerson Street in Northeast, near the Prince George's County line.
The boy was unconscious when the ambulance crew arrived but later died at the hospital.
The boy was walking with a group of three other children but was lagging behind, D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty tells WTOP.
Public school officials in the District have sent grief counselors to Bunker Hill to help students and staff deal with the boy's death.
A spokesman says the woman driving the SUV was extremely upset and was transported to the hospital for observation.
