BUCKLEY — The police chief in the Pierce County town of Buckley says a 2-year-old boy being pulled in a wagon on a trail was fatally injured when he was hit by a truck Monday afternoon.
KOMO-TV reports that Chief Jim Arsanto says the child’s father was pulling him in a wagon on a trail that runs along Highway 410.
Arsanto says the truck ran off the road, hit the boy, then continued down the trail until it hit a telephone pole.
The boy was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. The truck driver was taken to another hospital. The extent of his injuries was not known.
Investigators say neither drugs nor alcohol was a factor in the crash.
