Raleigh Child Dies After Being Struck by SUV

A 3-year-old in Raleigh died after he was hit by an SUV outside of an elementary school.

According to the accident report in an article by WRAL, a 33-year-old Raleigh driver stopped when a mother and her children stepped from behind parked cars into the public-vehicular access area in front of Wild Wood Forest Elementary School.

The driver started moving forward again when she thought the whole family had passed, but the child walked out from between the parked cars. The driver told police she swerved to the left after hearing the boy’s mother scream.

Raleigh police said the child’s death is being ruled as an accident, and no charges have been filed against the driver.
