Driver won’t be charged in death

Toddler died after being left in hot van in September 2011

No criminal charges will be filed in the tragic 2011 death of a toddler who was left in a sweltering van in Dorchester for up to six hours after the driver failed to drop him off at day care, the Suffolk district attorney announced Monday.

Seventeen-month-old Gabriel Josh-Cazir Pierre died in September 2011 after the driver, Luis Matos, failed to notice that he was still in the van, prosecutors said.
