Police are holding a 23-year-old Skokie woman in custody after she allegedly hit and killed an 8-year-old boy near the intersection of Main Street and St. Louis Avenue on Monday around 4:30 p.m.
While charges are still pending, police had the woman provide several samples for toxicology tests, which is required per Illinois law, police said. While officers said they don't think alcohol played a role in the death of the second-grader, it will still take up to six weeks to get the test results back, police said. The woman currently remains in custody, authorities said.
The boy, who was identified as Carter Vo, was out with his bicycle before being hit and killed as a result of the three car accident. He would later be pronounced at 8:18 p.m. that day. Vo was a student at Madison School*.
