— A boy who was struck by an SUV when he ran into the street last weekend has died.

Nicholas Warren, 9, died at Duke University Hospital, according to Durham police spokeswoman Kammie Michael.

Warren, who lived on Cheek Road, was hit shortly after 12:30 p.m. Saturday on Liberty Street near Belt Street, east of downtown, Michael said.

Police determined that the boy ran in front of a Ford Escape driven by Peggy Marie Brown and that neither speed nor alcohol were factors. They do not plan to charge Brown.
