Gwinnett County youth dies after falling from moving vehicle

POSTED: April 14, 2014 12:06 a.m.

A 6-year-old Gwinnett County boy died Saturday from injuries sustained after being struck by a vehicle, according to Gwinnett County Police spokesman Sgt. Brian Doan.

Doan said police were notified around 9 p.m. of the incident in the 5000 block of Oak Grove Drive in Buford.

The child and his 11-year-old brother were in the back of their father’s truck when the 6-year-old jumped out of the bed of the truck while the father was backing up in their driveway.

He was run over by the truck, which was towing a trailer, and he later died after being transported to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite.

Doan said the Gwinnett County Accident Investigation Unit was on scene and handling the investigation.

He wasn’t sure Sunday if charges would be filed.
