Police no longer looking for motorist who killed toddler

MILWAUKIE, Ore. (AP) — Police say a search has been called off for the motorist who fatally struck a toddler on a Milwaukie residential street. The Oregonian/OregonLive reports an unknown vehicle struck and killed 2-year-old Jack Barrett July 2 when he opened the door of his grandparents’ house on Southeast Wichita Avenue and wandered into the street. Police on Monday night said they had ended the search because they’ve determined the vehicle likely did not sustain much damage in the collision and the driver may not have been aware of what happened. They also said the child’s autopsy indicates that speeding was not a factor in the crash.
