2-year-old hit by truck on Buckley walking path dies

A 2-year-old boy has died after he was struck by a pickup truck on a walking path in Buckley.

Buckley Police say the accident happened on SR 410 between Mason and Main Monday afternoon.

Police are investigating why the truck left the roadway, went through a ditch and onto the Foothills Trail.

A child was being pulled in a wagon on the trail when he was hit. The 78-year-old driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries, KING 5 reports.

Police say drugs or alcohol do not appear to be a factor.
