BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) — A Booneville child is dead after being run over by a car.

Coroner Greg Sparks is calling it a freak accident, though officials are still investigating.

Sparks tells WCBI it happened shortly before 5 p.m. Saturday in the driveway of a home on Martin Luther King Drive in Booneville.

He says the two-year-old boy was outside playing in the yard, when someone accidentally backed up their car over him.

No charges have been filed.

Officials are not yet releasing the child’s name.

His body will be sent for an autopsy this week.
