[ARCHIVED] Coconino County Sheriff’s Office Investigating Accident Resulting in Death of 2-Year-Old

Williams, AZ - On November 3rd at 11:19 am Coconino County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a report of a single vehicle accident involving a 2-year-old boy. 

Coconino County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a residence in the Valle area, which is approximately 25 miles north of Williams, AZ, for a report of a child who had been hit by a pick- up truck.  The father reported that the child had been struck by a neighbor’s vehicle.  In seeking emergency help, the father of the boy brought the injured child to the house a Department of Public Safety trooper who lived nearby.  Sheriff's deputies responded to the residence and transported the child to the Valle Airport where they met Guardian medics and Guardian Air.  The child was pronounced dead at the airport by medics on scene.

Initial information indicates that a neighbor had been helping the family haul water.  The child appeared to have been hit when the pickup truck was being backed up to connect to the water trailer. 

The child was transported to the Coconino County Medical Examiner’s Office, and the incident is still under investigation. 

Other agencies that assisted in response to this incident include Guardian Medical Transport and Guardian Air, Lifeline Air, Tusayan Fire Department, and High Country Fire Department.
