New Jersey boy struck, killed by police cruiser
FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — A southern New Jersey prosecutor is investigating an accident in which a police cruiser struck and killed a 10-year-old boy walking to a friend’s house for a sleepover.
An autopsy performed Monday on the boy, Matthew McCloskey, determined that he died of multiple injuries. His death was listed as accidental. Officials say the child was struck along a busy road in Franklin Township around 7 p.m. Sunday.
The Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office says the vehicle being driven by 23-year-old Patrolman Nicholas Locilento was heading to a call and that no other vehicles were involved in the crash.
