A 15-year-old girl died after she was struck by a car in Randolph Tuesday night.
Laura Viera, of East Boston, was crossing the street at the intersection of Oak Street and North Main Street at around 8 p.m. when police said she was hit by a 2000 Chrysler LHS sedan. Viera was transported to Milton Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Police said Viera was in the crosswalk at the time but the driver did have a green light. The driver, a 21-year-old Randolph man, did stay at the scene and cooperated with police. No charges have been filed.
Drugs and alcohol are not believed to be involved. Randolph Police are now investigating the crash.
On Wednesday, Boston Public Schools released a statement:
Superintendent Tommy Chang and the entire Boston Public Schools community express their deepest condolences to the family, friends and classmates of Laura Viera during this difficult time. The district has made its trauma response team available for students and staff who are affected by this tragedy. Additional resources are being provided to students, teachers, and families on how best to guide and support one another through their feelings of loss and grief.
