YUKON, Okla. - A 2-year-old boy who was hit by a truck in Yukon Tuesday night has passed away.

Around 7 p.m. Tuesday, Chevy Lee was struck by a truck near Cornwell and Vandament Ave.

The toddler was rushed to a local hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.

A local pharmacy's surveillance video, shown to NewsChannel 4, shows the boy running into the street from a nearby apartment complex.

The property manager told NewsChannel 4 the boy lived there.

Yukon police are reviewing the surveillance video and interviewing witnesses to determine what led up to the crash.

"No one ever wants to investigate a case like this, but they’re trying the best that they can to do what’s right for the boy and his family," said Yukon Spokeswoman Jenna Roberson. "It was very tragic, just an awful scene."

Police said the driver who hit the child stopped and everyone involved is cooperating with officers.

At this time, it is unclear exactly what happened, but those who drive the stretch of roadway said it is dangerous because of frequent foot traffic and low lighting.
