MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A six-year-old boy who was struck and killed by a car in Milwaukee Thursday morning was identified as Corey Stevenson Jr.
Police said he was on his way to school when he left an alley and crossed in the middle of a block on a busy North Avenue. That's where he was hit by a car driven by a 58-year-old Milwaukee woman.
She was not injured, and police said she was cooperating with their investigation.
Corey was a kindergarten student at Clarke Street Elementary School on Milwaukee's north side.
School Superintendent Greg Thornton met with the victim's family, and said Corey would be greatly missed. Thornton said the child loved school, and his classwork was on display throughout his family's house.
Counselors are available Thursday to help Milwaukee school kids and staffers cope with the tragedy.
