4 year old hit by vehicle in Dawson Springs

A 4 year old boy is listed in good condition after he was hit by a truck Friday afternoon, according to authorities.

The Hopkins County Sheriff’s Department reported to WMSK News late Saturday that the accident occurred around 2:00 Friday afternoon at a residence in the 1900 block of Niles Road in Dawson Springs.

According to the report, Travis Welch had unloaded trash from a vehicle behind his residence and believed both of his children had left the area. Authorities say Welch asked his fiancĂ©e, Misty Fain, to move the vehicle and when doing so she heard something hit the truck. She reportedly exited the vehicle and realized that Welch’s 4 year old son had been struck by the truck.

The 4 year old boy was transported to Baptist Health where he is listed in good condition, according to the Sheriff’s office.
