Tragedy Strikes Near Beloit As 6 Year Old Boy Is Killed

A 6-year-old boy lost his life as a result of a freak accident just after 7p.m. on Thursday in Mitchell County about three miles northeast of Beloit.

The Kansas Highway Patrol reported a 2008 Dodge Durango driven by Kay Lynn Lewis, 28, Beloit, was traveling in theĀ 3200 block of E Road just west of Charlene Road.

A source within the family tells KD-Country 94 and Z-96.3 News that the child, Nolan D. Lewis, was running along side the vehicle as his mother was leaving their home. It is unclear if the boy lost his footing or simply got too close to the vehicle and was struck by the left rear tire.
