Hastings boy dies after being hit by SUV

A young Hastings boy who was run over by an SUV last weekend has died.

Officials at the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha are confirming the death of three-year-old Aldo Ramirez-Lopez, though it’s not clear when he died.

On Saturday night, reports say the boy stepped out from between several parked vehicles at a Hastings trailer park and into the path of the SUV, which was driven by his uncle.

The man, identified as 21-year-old Miguel Lopez, says he never saw the boy. No charges were filed.
