LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Police in Kentucky say a 6-year-old who was struck by a car while riding a bike has died.

The Courier-Journal reports the boy was escorted by police in an ambulance to a Louisville hospital before he died there on Thursday. The Jefferson County coroner’s office identified him as Malik Thomas and said he died of multiple blunt force injuries.

Shively police spokesman Lt. Col. Josh Myers says the driver stopped after the collision and that police do not expect to file any charges.

Myers says the boy was on a street in a residential area when he was struck around 6:45 p.m.

Myers says there were no signs of intoxicants or impairment in the driver and that police don’t believe the driver was doing anything inappropriate.
