An autopsy performed Monday on the boy, Matthew McCloskey, determined that he died of multiple injuries. His death was listed as accidental. Officials say the child was struck along a busy road in Franklin Township around 7 p.m. Sunday.

The Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office says the vehicle being driven by 23-year-old Patrolman Nicholas Locilento was heading to a call and that no other vehicles were involved in the crash.
