Gracie Gancheva died after being struck shortly after 5:05 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of Congress and Sleeper Streets in Fort Point, Suffolk District Attorney Kevin Hayden said. Gancheva was transported by Boston Emergency Medical Services to an area hospital, where she was pronounced dead. A police report said the autopsy determined the preliminary cause of death was “blunt force injury.” The death was preliminarily determined to be an accident by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, the police report states. “It’s difficult to adequately express the scope of tragedy in losing someone so young,” Hayden said in a statement on Wednesday. “My staff and I extend our deepest condolences to Gracie Gancheva’s family, friends and loved ones.”Additionally, the report indicates that Gancheva lives in Denver, Colorado. Boston police said the child was with family members at the time of the crash.”It’s a very emotional situation,” said Bureau of Field Services Superintendent Lanita Culliane.The vehicle involved in the crash remained at the scene, according to police. Boston police said the driver of that vehicle is not facing charges at this time.”It was chaos,” said Kim Harris, a witness who was in the area. “I don’t know how many police officers were over here but, yeah, the lights were everywhere. They put the tape up quickly, and helicopters were flying overhead.” The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
