VIRGINIA BEACH – A local child died after being struck by a vehicle Tuesday afternoon.
Police said it happened on a private driveway in the 1400 block of Princess Anne Road at around 2:34 p.m.
It was at that time that dispatchers received a report of a vehicle that had struck a young child.
“First responders tended to the child’s injuries and Nightingale (Regional Air Ambulance) was requested but due to response time, the child was transported via ambulance to a local hospital, where he died because of the injuries sustained,” said police spokeswoman Tonya Pierce.
Pierce did not release the child’s identity “due to legal restrictions prohibiting us to do so.”
She said the Virginia Beach Police Department’s Fatal Crash Team is investigating.
No other information about the incident was immediately released.
