Ice Cream Truck Driver Charged with Negligent Homicide after Tragic Crash Claims Life of 12-Year-Old Boy

According to WGNO, the ice cream truck driver accused of crashing into a Kenner apartment now faces charges of negligent homicide following the untimely death of a 12-year-old boy. The devastating incident unfolded on Saturday, May 20, in the 300 block of Clemson Place, leaving the community in a state of disbelief.

Initial reports from the Kenner Police Department (KPD) indicated that 71-year-old Mechael Yousef Mansoor had suffered a medical event, leading to the catastrophic collision between his ice cream truck and the apartment. The crash inflicted critical injuries upon young Adrien Flores, the 12-year-old victim.

At the outset, Mansoor was charged with negligent injuring and reckless operation of a vehicle. However, the Flores family shared the heartbreaking news that Adrien had been pronounced legally dead after being removed from life support. As a result, KPD officials have decided to escalate the charges against Mansoor, who now faces the grave accusation of negligent homicide.

Authorities are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash to reveal any additional details that can clarify this tragic accident.
