A 12-year-old boy was struck by a vehicle last week and later succumbed to the injuries sustained in the accident.
The accident has occurred in Hannibal on Munger Lane when the driver of the car was heading northbound. There was heavy rainfall when the accident occurred which may have attributed to the accident.
The 12-year-old boy was stuck by the vehicle and was transported to Hannibal Regional Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. The 18-year-old driver of the car was also transported to the hospital. The Missouri State Highway Patrol has been called in to help assist in the investigation.

The accident occurred just outside of Paris when a 49-year-old man was traveling southbound and a 29-year-old woman was driving a truck when she slowed to make a right turn onto a private street.
The 49-year-old man then swerved his vehicle in order to avoid a collision with a vehicle in front of him and he went off the right side of the road, striking the truck. Both drivers were taken to the hospital to be treated for their injuries, but their current condition is unknown.
