A 3 year-old boy is dead after a terrible car accident in South Boston. A collision between multiple vehicles at the intersection of L and E. Sixth streets caused one car to hit two children in a stroller on Wednesday afternoon.
It has not been confirmed, but it is believed the woman pushing the stroller with the children was on the sidewalk. A 3-year old boy was killed and his 4-year-old sister was hurt but is expected to survive.
Because it was street cleaning on L Street, there were no cars on that side of the street. Police Commissioner Bill Evans, who was on scene, believes parked cars on that side could have acted as barrier.
Mayor Marty Walsh and BPD Superintendent-in-Chief William Gross were also on scene.
The Boston police are looking for help from anyone who is in the area at the time of the accident on Wednesday afternoon at the intersection of L and Sixth. Detectives are seeking witness photos and videos taken before, during and/or after that could help with the investigation. Anyone with images or videos is asked to email them directly to Sergeant Detective Thomas Barrett at [email protected]
