4-Year Old Killed In Traffic Accident

A pedestrian accident claimed the life of a 4-year-old boy in Silver Lake Wednesday afternoon.

Officers and emergency personnel responded to a 9-1-1 report of a truck/pedestrian crash located on State Road 15 in Silver Lake at around 1:42 p.m. . Kosciusko County Coroner Michael Wilson was summoned to the scene and pronounced 4-year-old Logan Heeter, Clay Pool, dead at the scene from blunt force trauma.

The Kosciusko County Fatal Alcohol Crash team says a preliminary investigation of the crash determined that Logan tried to cross the street from the west side of State Road 15.

25-year-old Travis Woodcock was driving a 2001 Freightliner flatbed truck southbound when he suddenly saw Heeter enter into his path. Woodcock attempted to brake and swerve but could not avoid striking Heeter.

The crash is still currently under investigation.
