WINDER - While Barrow County authorities continued to investigate, they said preliminary evidence indicated the death of a 14-month-old boy Wednesday afternoon was a tragic accident.
According to Barrow County Sheriff's Lt. Matt Guthas, the boy was run over by a vehicle in a driveway on Bowman Terrace in Winder.
