A 23-month-old boy was killed Sunday in Lisle when he was struck by a vehicle driven by a 40-year-old woman while in a private drive on the 2200 block of Christian Lane.

Police said emergency teams responded at 3:35 p.m. and took the boy to Edward Hospital in Naperville where he died of his injuries before he could be flown to Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago.


The driver was working for a package delivery service, using her own sedan, according to police. She did not know the boy, who lived in a nearby home.

The neighborhood contains multi-family buildings that have private garages but share a drive that exits on to Christian.

No charges nor citations have been issued, police said, but their investigation is continuing.

The DuPage County MERIT Accident Reconstruction Team and the DuPage sheriff's office provided investigative support.
