Baby struck by neighbor’s car dies from injuries

By: Dee DeQuattro



A 15-month-old boy who was struck by his neighbor’s car last month in Providence has died from his injuries this morning.

Justin Diaz Cabral was critically injured when he was outside his home on Gillen Street  on August 26, when his 28-year-old neighbor was backing out of her driveway heading to work. The neighbor struck the boy and didn’t realize it. She continued to head to work and the boy’s father rushed him to the hospital.

Cabral has remained at Hasbro Children’s Hospital since that time.

As of now the police have not pressed charges against the driver.
