One-Year-Old Dead After Being Hit by Vehicle

Posted: Updated:
A one-year-old is dead following an incident on the Spirit Lake Reservation. Kyle Loven with the FBI says the toddler was hit by a vehicle on Saturday.  No arrests have been made.

A family member tells Valley News Live she believes the driver didn't see the child while backing up, and it was an accident. Authorities are still looking into the exact circumstances leading up to the child being hit.

The Spirit Lake Tribal Chairman says this is a good reminder for parents, "I think it is a terrible accident and it stresses the importance of watching your kids and keeping them safe," Tribal Chairman Leander McDonald said.

The FBI is consulting with Spirit Lake Tribal Police and the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). Loven says reports will be submitted to the U.S. Attorney's office.
