KENNA, W.Va. — A toddler critically injured in a Tuesday afternoon accident on Interstate 77 in Jackson County has died.
Jackson County officials said the young boy was thrown out of a pickup truck that flipped near Kenna. The boy’s parents, who were in the vehicle, were still hospitalized Wednesday for injuries they sustained.
There were reports the child was in a car seat, but investigators said it may not have been properly installed.
The accident shut down part of I-77 north for a time on Tuesday.
