SHARE Brigham City boy is struck by car, dies in S.L. hospital

A six-year-old boy died Friday after he was struck by a car Thursday afternoon in Brigham City.

Killed was:

Landen Thompson, 6, Brigham City.

Thompson ran into the street about 6 p.m. Thursday, Brigham City Police Lt. Gary Gervich said in a prepared statement. A 17-year-old driver traveling west on Bott Avenue apparently was unable to react in time to avoid striking Thompson. The name of the driver was not released.

Thompson was transported to Brigham City Community Hospital, and later flown to Primary Children's Medical Center where he was listed in critical condition. He was pronounced dead about 5 p.m. Friday.

The accident is still under investigation, Gervich said.
