Police are likely to decide this week whether to press charges against the driver of the vehicle that struck and killed Junior Ianuali on Champion St.

At the time of Kapi-Mana News going to press, Kapiti Mana Police area commander Inspector John Price said the serious crash unit was still investigating the incident, which occurred about 3.15pm on Friday afternoon.

Witnesses said Junior was playing with friends before he ran onto the road.

Members of the Trauma Support Unit and Cannons Creek-based Neighbourhood Policing Team were to speak to Cannons Creek School staff and students yesterday, Mr Price said.

"My absolute condolences go out to the family for this tragedy."
