Police: Waldorf Boy, 3, Killed After Leaving Car

WALDORF, Md. (AP) — The Charles County Sheriff’s Office says a 3-year-old boy was killed after he climbed out of his mother’s car and walked into the path of another vehicle.

Authorities say the incident occurred in the 10500-block of Sugarberry Street in Waldorf about 2 p.m. Tuesday.

Police say the boy had been in a car seat in the back seat of the vehicle when his mother pulled over to give some mail to a postal worker. Police say the boy unbuckled himself, left the car and walked into the roadway where he was struck by an oncoming SUV.

The boy was pronounced dead at the scene.
