DENHAM SPRINGS, La. (AP) Livingston Parish Sheriff's deputies say a 5-year-old Denham Springs boy died when his mother accidentally ran over him in their driveway.
Deputies say Justice Bowlin was playing in his driveway Wednesday afternoon when he was struck by an automobile driven by his mother, Jerri Lockett.
The Advocate reports Livingston Parish Fire Protection District No. 5 treated the child, then transported him to a hospital in Baton Rouge where he was pronounced dead.
Authorities say an investigation into the death continues, but deputies think the death was accidental and the mother likely won't be charged.
