A 10 year-old-boy was killed in a traffic accident at 7:39 p.m. on Sept. 17 on the 9300 block of Candelas Parkway. The boy — an Arvada resident — was riding an electric scooter when he was struck by a Toyota Prius, the impact of which caused fatal injuries.
The driver of the Toyota, identified only as a “male driver” by Arvada Police, is cooperating with the investigation, according to APD Public Information Officer Dave Snelling. The driver stayed on the scene as officers responded.
Snelling added that the investigation is ongoing, and charges have not been pressed yet.
“This is a tragedy and we want to make sure we cover every aspect in the investigation,” Snelling said. “We need to look at positioning, where the young man was on the roadway. We’re seeing if there’s any preventable action either parties could have taken.”
Snelling said APD has notified the child’s family and was notifying his school district. The scooter the boy was riding was store bought and privately owned, not a ride-sharing vehicle.
