Investigation Begins For NJ Boy Killed by Police Cruiser

A police cruiser struck and killed a 10-year-old boy as he was walking to a sleepover, New Jersey police say.

The Franklinville police were responding to an emergency call when their cruiser reportedly hit the young boy. Witnesses to the fatal accident claim the officers were “speeding down the highway” without using lights or sirens.


The 10-year-old boy was pronounced dead at the scene after being hit by the New Jersey police cruiser Sunday evening. The Franklinville boy was walking to a sleepover with two friends, who were not injured in the accident, CBS News reported. One of the boys was able to get across the intersection at Paul Street and Delsea Drive – a two-lane highway. The 10-year-old boy was killed when the police cruiser attempted to do the same, but was struck by a vehicle in the process.

Franklinville police officers performed CPR on the boy but were unable to revive him. The name of the New Jersey boy has not been released. Law enforcement officials have stated that Franklin Township police officer Nicholas Locilento was behind the wheel of the cruiser after responding to an emergency call. The police department has not yet commented on claims by family members and other witnesses related to the absence of lights and sirens.

The father of the boys walking with the 10-year-old killed in the accident, said he had been “tailing the boys” in his car as they walked to their sleepover. The Franklin Township officer, who was the only individual in the police cruiser at the time of the accident, was reportedly taken to a local hospital for evaluation.

The Franklinville, New Jersey area police department described the accident as “tragic for everyone.”

A southern New Jersey prosecutor is investigating the accident. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

A statement released by law enforcement officials said, “First and foremost our thoughts and prayers go out to the McCloskey family that tragically lost their son. Whenever a young life is lost like this it is tragic for everyone, his family and our community.”
