Child dies after being struck by a pickup truck

GREENWOOD – A 2-year-old boy died Monday after being struck by a pickup in a Greenwood mobile home park.

The Johnson County Sheriff’s Department says that 59-year-old Christopher L. White, of Greenwood, an employee of Winterbrook Mobile Home Community, was driving a company truck at about 4:39 p.m. Monday afternoon when the boy was hit.

Isaiah D. Bonds was pronounced dead at the scene by the Johnson County Coroner’s office.

According to the accident report, White came to a complete stop at an intersection and never saw the boy enter the intersection over the tall hood of the truck. After he started to pull away from the intersection, White told police he felt his truck hit something and stopped to see what it was. That’s when he discovered he had struck the boy.
