Death of toddler run over by father ruled an accident

PASCO, Wash. (AP) — The Franklin County Coroner's Office says the death of a toddler who was hit by a truck driven by his father was an accident.

The Tri-City Herald reports that 13-mont-old Quinn Axel Kysar was in the backyard of a home on West Sagemoor Road north of Pasco on Monday afternoon when the truck hit him. His father was reportedly doing sod work at the time, and other family members were around.

Deputy coroner Harold Livingston said the death was accidental and no autopsy is scheduled.

A crowd gathered at the house until after 6 p.m., and were holding a prayer service, the Tri-City Herald reported.
