Eight year old Carter Vo was riding his bicycle on the sidewalk after school on Monday afternoon when a car driven by a 23 year old Skokie woman jumped the curb and ran him down, killing him, according to the Skokie-Review. The incident occurred shortly before 4:30 p.m. near the intersection of Main Street and St. Louis Avenue. The driver was allegedly traveling southbound on St. Louis attempting to turn left onto westbound Main when she hit an eastbound vehicle. Southbound St. Louis is controlled by a stop sign. East and westbound traffic on Main is not required to stop. The collision reportedly caused the driver to lose control, careen onto the sidewalk nearby and hit Carter, carrying him and his bicycle several feet before crashing into a parked car and coming to a stop. The boy lived on the 4600 block of Madison Street in Skokie. He was dead at the scene.
