Grandfather fatally strikes 1-year old in driveway in tragic accident

News Channel 11 is reporting a tragic accident at a family home on Friday May 6, 2011. One year old Davon Reese’s grandfather accidentally ran over Davon with his Lincoln Navigator in the driveway of the family’s home at around 3:30pm in the 18000 block of Desert Marigold. Apparently the grandfather had no idea he had struck the child as he was leaving to pick up another child: he learned of the accident when he returned. The child was transported to Houston North West Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival. The report indicates there was some confusion among family members about who was taking care of Davon at the time of the accident. Paramedics tended to the grandfather at the scene, who was extremely distraught over what had happened. ABC News’ story is here.
