No Charges in Accident that Killed a Littleton Toddler

Littleton Police said they do not intend to file charges against a driver who struck and killed a 2-year-old boy in the Aspen Grove parking on November 17. The tragedy occurred in the parking lot of the shopping center, when the young boy was hit by an SUV during the morning hours. The boy was rushed to an area hospital, where doctors later pronounced him dead. Police said that the driver did not act negligently or recklessly in the incident.

It is always tragic when someone so young is killed in an accident. Our hearts go out to his family and loved ones. We try to teach our kids to always look both ways before crossing a street, but accidents involving child pedestrians happen every day. Unfortunately, as was the case in this accident, pedestrians are likely to be killed or sustain serious injuries when struck by a motor vehicle. If you or someone you love was injured or killed in an accident caused by the negligence of a driver, you should discuss your legal options with a Boulder injury attorney.
