KSHB NBC Action News reports the child- "Kade Meyer-" was struck by a sports utility vehicle (SUV) after he ran onto Madison between two parked cars next to Madison Elementary school in Gardner where young Meyer was a student.

The boy was rushed by MEDACT-EMS to a Johnson County medical trauma center where he died.

The KSHB story does not mention if the SUV driver was cited- only that this incident is "under investigation."

CSW offers our sincere condolences to the family and friends of young Kade Meyer.
