A toddler was killed Wednesday night after darting into a street in the city's Marquette Park community.

The accident happened just two weeks before Jeremiah Griffin's second birthday.

Griffin died after being struck by a car in the 3000-block of West Columbus.

Relatives say the child ran out of the house and into the street before anyone could stop him.

Police say the driver stayed on the scene.

No charges have been filed against the driver.
