Boy, 9, struck by minivan on Western Avenue dies

A 9-year-old boy was killed last night when he was struck by a minivan as he ran across Western Avenue, near Eldred Avenue, about a half-mile from his South Toledo home, police said.

Marcus Thomas of 239 Hanover St. died in Toledo Hospital about an hour after the accident.

The boy ran from between two parked minivans in the 1500 block of Western about 7:40 p.m. and was struck by the eastbound minivan driven by Brian Momgaudas, 26, of 227 Dearborn Ave.

The boy's sister and two cousins, who were sitting on the porch of a house at 1517 Western at the time of the accident, told police Marcus had been running back and forth across the street for some time, but did not say why, investigators said.
