WILLIAMS, Ariz. (KSAZ) - A 2-year-old boy was hit and killed by a neighbor's truck in the Valle area Saturday morning.
Coconino County Sheriff's deputies responded to a home in Valle, 25 miles north of Williams, just after 11:00 a.m. for a report of a child being struck by a pick-up truck.
The father of the boy told officials the child had been hit by a neighbor's vehicle and brought the child to the home of a Department of Public Safety trooper who lived near by for help.
Sheriff's deputies brought the boy to the Valle Airport to meet Guardian medics, who pronounced the child dead at the airport.
Investigators say a neighbor was helping the family haul water when it appears the boy was hit by the truck as it was being backed up to connect to the water trailer.
The incident remains under investigation.
