GREENVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- Weeks after a 4-year-old boy was struck and killed in Greenville, the elderly unlicensed driver police say is responsible is now facing felony charges.
Susan Rieckman, 69, of Cedar Springs, is charged with driving on a suspended license causing death.
Just before noon Sept. 14, police say 4-year-old Talos Bills and a 16-year-old family friend were crossing South Lafayette at Washington on the way home.
Rieckman turned left, injuring the 16-year-old and killing Talos.
The family of Talos says they harbor no hatred for the driver, but says she needs to answer for her mistake.
"Because, I mean, he lost his life," points out Pamela Bills, the boy's grandmother. "She didn't have a license and she shouldn't be driving."
