Child dies after being struck by car
A 4-year-old child died after being struck by a car on private property at about 11:30 a.m. Monday, Assumption Parish Sheriff Mike Waguespack reports.
Waguespack said the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 call in the 100 block of Cousin Street about a child who was hit by a car on private property.
The driver of the vehicle was pulling into the residence and did not see the child at that time, he said.
The child was taken to Teche Regional Medical Center in Morgan City with life threatening injuries that he later died from.
The Assumption Parish Sheriff’s office is continuing the investigation and the body is being sent to the Orleans Parish coroner for autopsy, he said.
No charges have been filed on the driver at this time.
