13-year-old Weston boy has died from injuries he sustained when he was struck by a vehicle on Hwy. 45 in Weston near the intersection with Fifth Street Saturday night, March 13, the Platte County Sheriff’s Department reports. The teen died on Monday night, March 15, said Major Erik Holland with the sheriff’s department.

Holland said the driver remained at the scene and was cooperative with investigators. Holland said speed was not a factor, alcohol was not involved, and it was dark at the time of the incident. No citations or charges have been issued. The accident occurred at 7:12 p.m. on Saturday.
