When officers arrived, they said they found out that a car, driven by 60-year-old Thomas Vinci, was traveling westbound on Tuxhorn Drive and made a left turn onto southbound Raindance Way as a group of trick-or-treaters was crossing at the intersection.

Alcohol nor cellphone use were factors in the collision.
