A little boy died late Sunday after being struck by a vehicle in the back lane in the 700 block of Toronto Street.

Winnipeg police confirmed the boy, 3, was hit about 4:20 p.m. Sunday afternoon and was rushed to hospital in critical condition.

He did not survive.

Police say the child was in the back lane of Toronto when a vehicle turned from a back lane of Notre Dame Avenue and struck him.

 

The driver of the vehicle immediately stopped and called 911, and was later interviewed by members of the Winnipeg Police central traffic unit.

Speed and alcohol are not considered factors, and no charges have been laid.

The investigation is continuing.
