Boy, 7, struck and killed by boat trailer

July 21, 2019

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Authorities say a 7-year-old was killed after being run over by a boat trailer at a park in Portland, Oregon.

KOIN reports the accident at Willamette Park happened about 6:30 p.m. on Saturday.

The Portland Police Bureau said officers responded to a call that the boy had been run over by a boat but investigators said it appeared he was run over by a boat trailer, not a boat, at the boat ramp.

He was rushed to a hospital with life-threatening injuries but died a short while later.

The area was closed for several hours while an investigation was completed.
