The driver said the collision was accidental. The victim’s pastor also said the incident is believed to be an accident.

Cain said the child died around 5 p.m. at a local hospital.

MPO James Cason told WAVY.com they do not anticipate any charges in this incident and the Virginia Beach Commonwealth’s Attorney will make the final review.
