A 1-year-old boy was run over and killed by his father in a tragic incident Monday in Sumter.
The boy, Devonte Archie of Waco Court in Wedgefield, died enroute to Tuomey Regional Medical Center, according to a Sumter County Sheriff's Office report.
The report said:
Around 7:30 p.m., Veito Vidal Wright, 33, of Wedgefield, the boy's father, was driving a Cadillac in reverse at his residence when he thought he hit and drove over something with the driver's side rear tire.
He got out of the car and discovered the child, whom he attempted to help. The boy's mother, Courtney Renee Archie, also was at the scene.
