Three-year-old dies in driveway accident
On the evening of March 29th, deputies were called to an address on CR 1613 with regard to an accident involving a child.
On arrival, Wood County deputies and a Texas DPS trooper found that a three-year-old boy had been accidentally run over by the mother's boyfriend. The boyfriend had been attempting to back into the driveway of the residence on CR 1613 during evening low light., when the child wandered behind the vehicle.
The child was taken to the East Texas Medical Center emergency room in Quitman, where he was pronounced dead by the attending physician. Out of respect for the families involved, the sheriff's office is not releasing the names of the parties involved at this time.
