Child Struck and Killed by Vehicle in Beach Park

(Beach Park, IL)  A child is dead after being struck by a vehicle in Beach Park. Lake County Sheriff’s officials say they were called around noon Monday to the 12-thousand block of West Beach Road, and arrived to find a 3-year-old being administered CPR. The child was rushed to Vista East in Waukegan where the boy was pronounced dead. A preliminary investigation showed that the child unknowingly rode his bike behind a vehicle that was backing out of a driveway, to give other children room to play basketball. That vehicle struck the child. The incident remains under investigation by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigations Unit.
