Coroner: Boy, 7, fatally struck by vehicle at Berkeley Co. bus stop

MONCKS CORNER, SC (WCSC) - A 7-year-old boy who reportedly ran onto a Berkeley County road and was hit by a vehicle Friday morning has died, according to the Berkeley County Coroner's Office.

Coroner Bill Salisbury says 7-year-old Craig M. Little Jr. of Moncks Corner was at a school bus on Domingo Drive when he was struck by an SUV around 6:33 a.m.

Little was transported by helicopter to MUSC, and died at 10:48 a.m. 

"It is with deep regret that we must confirm that Berkeley County School District lost one of its students in a tragic accident prior to school this morning," read a statement by the school district.

Officials say the 70-year-old driver of the SUV was traveling south on Domingo Drive when Little ran out into the road. His death has been ruled accidental.

SC Highway Patrol is investigating the incident. No charges have been filed.

The driver, who was wearing a seatbelt, was not hurt.
