Prosecutor: No charges to be filed in toddler's death

Wednesday, March 5, 2014

By DEBBIE HALL - Bulletin Staff Writer

No criminal charges will be filed in connection with an accident Friday that resulted in a toddler’s death.

Mackenzie Hubbard, 2, died after she was struck by a vehicle when she allegedly walked into the road around 5:20 p.m. on Route 721 in Patrick County, police have said. A Patrick Springs man operated the 1994 Geo Metro involved in the accident, police said.

Patrick County Commonwealth’s Attorney Stephanie Vipperman said Tuesday that she has spoken with Virginia State Police Trooper J.M. Hylton, who investigated the accident.

Hylton indicated it could be weeks before a final report in the case is complete, but he reviewed the case with Vipperman over the telephone, she said.  

“Based on his investigation, I have decided no criminal charges will be filed,” Vipperman stated in an email.

Mackenzie, the daughter of Coby and Sherry Hubbard of Patrick Springs, died at Wake Forest Baptist University Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., where she was flown from Memorial Hospital in Martinsville.
