LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — The Commonwealth’s Attorney for the City of Lynchburg, Bethany Harrison, says they do not have sufficient evidence to charge anyone for the car accident that killed 3-year-old Logan Kozlowski in Lynchburg on April 18.
Harrison reviewed official reports from the Lynchburg Police Department, photographs of the scene, and witness interviews from the incident that occurred near the Timberlake Dixie Youth Baseball field to determine if criminal charges could be filed.
After reviewing the available information, Harrison believes Logan was running and fell moments before the collision occurred. One witness said he was “rolling down the hill and falling under the truck’s front tire.” Logan was then struck by the rear tire.
Multiple witnesses reported that the truck was moving at a low rate of speed and police reports revealed that the driver did not show any signs of impairment or was distracted while driving.
The Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney shared the following:
“In this case, the driver did not see Logan approaching his vehicle perpendicular to the driver’s side. Even if it was possible for the driver to have seen Logan approaching, the opportunity to brake or take other evasive action was very brief, given that Logan began running or rolling after stepping off the final step down from the ballfield.”
