A tragic accident claims the life of a 2-year-old boy Wednesday afternoon in Omaha. The accident happened in front of a daycare operated by Chris Dean near 36th and Jefferson Streets in south Omaha. Dean says the mother of 2-year-old Maximiliano Delgado-Morales had arrived around 3:30 pm to pick up her four children when the boy ran into the street.
Delgado-Morales was hit by a pick up driven by 81 year old Tomas Sanchez-Cruz of Omaha. The boy was given CPR at the accident scene and rushed to a hospital where he later died.
Police say Sanchez-Cruz was not ticketed. Speed and alcohol use were not factors in the accident.
