A 2-year-old boy died from injuries he suffered when he was struck by a pizza-delivery car in the parking lot of a North Side apartment complex yesterday in Columbus.

The boy was pronounced dead at 8:05 p.m. at Nationwide Children’s Hospital after being transferred from Mount Carmel St. Ann’s in Westerville. He was identified last night as Logan Gonzales-Romero.

Columbus police were called at 6:19 p.m. to the 2200 block of Parkville Court in Trinity Square Apartments off Rt. 161.

The boy apparently had run out in front of the pizza-delivery car — perhaps, police said, because he was running toward an ice-cream truck that also was in the area.

The driver, James Bolognone, 39, stopped after the crash. The boy’s mother took the child to Mount Carmel St. Ann’s. The investigation continues.

WBNS-TV (Channel 10) contributed to this report.

Can't find local news to print for online so the reflector resorts to this stuff, sure its sad, but online here should be local. I can get the other news on msn or yahoo

I think the "local" value in a story like this is awareness. We have a LOT of kids running around in this city, including in parking lots. Parents need to make sure their children, especially toddlers, aren't wandering around in areas where they could get hit. And drivers need to make sure they're careful, even if they are in a hurry. So, yes it's sad. But yes, it's a valuable story for our area, even if (thankfully) this tragedy didn't happen here. That's my 2 cents worth.

The By line in the "front" should indicate Location ie Columbus. Without By Line makes the reader think its a local headline.

I agree, wish there was a way to identify the local stories from the wire stories.

The "MCT REGIONAL NEWS COLUMBUS" under the headline gives it away.
