Boy, 6, with mom killed outside Morrish school after classes

A six-year-old boy has been struck and killed Friday outside Morrish Public School on Canmore Blvd in Scarborough. The lad was on his way home with his mother when he was hit by a Mitsubishi SUV on Halfmoon Square north of Canmore. A man, 50, was driving a 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander, northbound on Halfmoon Square when the boy, 6, was hit attempting to cross.  The CBC reports that a friend of the driver who allegedly struck the boy said that his friend called him weeping after the crash. “He just say that he picked up his son from the school and he was driving by and a kid ran from left to right side,” Taufiq Alam said. “He just come in front of his car and got hit.” Thus it seems the driver is the father of a student at Morrish. This occurred about 3.30 p.m. in the area northeast of Ellesmere Ave and Conlins Road.
