4YO Girl Dies In Horrible Accident

A 4-year-old girl was killed in a horrible accident after she fell and was wedged between the tire and the mudflap of her father’s semi truck Sunday afternoon. EMTs responded to 5885 S. Wolf Lodge Creek Road at about 6 o’clock. They found that Steven Wilson had extricated his daughter, Julie, from under the truck.  Investigators decided that Julie had apparently climbed on the back of the semi-tractor, unknown to Steven, as he was leaving their residence to take the tractor to a shop for maintenance.  Somewhere during the seven-tenths of a mile trip, Julie fell and was caught between the tires and mud flap assembly.  When Steven arrived at the shop he found Julie wedged between the front set of dual wheels and the front mud flap. Julie was pronounced dead at the scene due to massive head trauma.  Sheriff’s investigators have determined that this is nothing greater than a tragic accident.
