A driver struck and killed his neighbor’s 20-month-old son after the boy ran out onto the street in a town in central Texas Sunday afternoon, police said Monday.
Henry Campos Jr. died at the scene on a street in Taylor, Texas, according to a police news release.
The driver of the 2008 Chevrolet pickup that struck the boy, Ernesto Herrera, 50, has not been charged.
Police are investigating the incident and will present the investigation to the Williamson County district attorney’s office for review.
Police were called at 4:39 p.m. Sunday about the incident.
Herrera stopped at the scene and cooperated with police, according to officials.
They said speed was not a factor in the accident and the driver was not impaired in any way.
Herrera lives across the street from the Campos family, police said.
The incident happened in front of both houses.
