A 7-year-old boy was struck and killed by an ice cream truck in South Los Angeles Wednesday night.
Police tell KTLA the boy was riding a bicycle alongside the ice cream truck, and was possibly holding on to it, when he fell off the bike and was run over by the vehicle.
The boy, identified as Jamarion Thomas, was taken to Harbor-UCLA Hospital where he later died in surgery.
Following the incident, the ice cream truck driver was assaulted by a group of neighbors who also threw bricks at the truck, KTLA reports.
Charges were not expected to be filed against the ice cream truck driver, KTLA reports. The driver’s condition was unknown.
