Boy, 4, dies in carpool lane near school

NICHOLS HILLS  Police say a pre-kindergarten student in Nichols Hills was struck and killed by a car driven by his father after being dropped off at school.

Christ the King Catholic School said Tuesday that 4-year-old Quaid Thomas Dolan was running back to his car when he was struck near the entrance to the school's junior high. 

The school held a prayer service Tuesday morning and told other pupils about the accident. Oklahoma City's archbishop later said a Mass for the boy and his family. School officials also told parents they could take their children out of classes for the day if they desired. The Archdiocese of Oklahoma City said counseling would be made available for students who remained.
