AURORA, Colo. — The coroner for Adams and Broomfield counties has identified the child who was struck and killed by a car at an Aurora wedding venue last month as David Gallegos Herrada. The 2-year-old was from the Portland, Oregon suburb of Beaverton.

The accident happened shortly after 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 31 in the 2000 block of North Tower Road.

Gallegos Herrada was left unattended at a wedding venue, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
