Texas Child Killed By SUV After Running From Wasps
Police say an 8-year-old Texas boy was running away from wasps when he was struck and killed by an SUV over the weekend. The accident happened in Lewisville, Texas about 25 miles northwest of Dallas. According to police, the boy was playing with friends when they disturbed a wasp nest and fled to avoid being stung.
A 20-year-old woman driving the SUV then hit the child as he ran across the road in front of her, unaware of the vehicle. Intoxication and speed of the vehicle are determined to not be factors in the boys death. No charges are currently being filed, and the case is still being investigated.
