WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — A 3-year-old boy has been struck and killed by an SUV while riding his bicycle in an apartment complex parking lot.
Worcester police say the boy was initially riding on the sidewalk but at some point went into the parking lot at about 2:45 p.m. Sunday.
He was struck by the front end of an SUV pulling out of a parking spot. The driver of the SUV brought the boy and his father to the hospital, where the child died.
The boy’s father told The Telegram & Gazette that the SUV was driven by a family friend who didn’t see his son. He described the crash as an accident.
Police continue to investigate but as of Sunday had not issued any citations or criminal charges.
