A 14-year-old boy was killed after being run over by a vehicle in Aurora on Monday evening, the Aurora Police Department announced.
Police said the hit-and-run happened just before 8 p.m. in the parking lot of Village Green Park at 1300 S. Chambers Circle, next to Gateway High School.
Responding officers found the boy trapped underneath a minivan and the driver of the van gone. Firefighters extracted the boy, but he was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
The driver of the minivan, a teenage girl, eventually returned to the scene of the crash and spoke with police. She had not been arrested as of Monday night.
