7-year-old Boy Struck, Killed in School Crosswalk

STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. (AP) - DeKalb police say the driver of a sport utility vehicle will be charged with vehicular homicide and other offenses after a 7-year-old boy was struck and killed walking in a crosswalk near a crossing guard.

Police identified the boy as Kameron Dunmore. He was killed near
Princeton Elementary School, not far from Stone Mountain, about
7:30 a.m. Monday. Police believe the driver of the SUV was taking
her own child to a different school.

DeKalb police spokeswoman Mekka Parish says the driver, 40-year-old Shirley Ogilvie, was taken to a hospital for observation. Parish said Ogilvie would be charged with vehicular homicide.

The child was pronounced dead on the way to a hospital. No other
children were in the crosswalk.
