Boy struck in Halloween crash in Irvine in critical condition


A 4-year-old boy who was struck while out trick-or-treating with his father in Irvine is in "critical but stable condition," police said Sunday.

The boy's father, 65-year-old John Roger Alcorn, received fatal injuries as they crossed a street at around 7:15 p.m. Friday. He died a little over an hour later.

Farrah Emami, spokeswoman for the Irvine Police Department, said the female driver remained at the scene, cooperated with investigators and was released.

No charges have been pressed, pending an investigation, Emami said.
