A 3-year-old boy was killed Thursday night when a truck he was standing in front of lurched forward, striking the boy, his father and his grandfather, according to Blount County Sheriffs Office.
The two men were not seriously injured.
Blount County Sheriff James Berrong said Friday the sheriffs office is investigating the accident that occurred at around 8 p.m.
Sheriffs deputies responded to a residence on New Blockhouse Road to what they thought was a disturbance call. When deputies arrived, they were advised that a 3-year-old boy had been rushed by private vehicle to Blount Memorial Hospital after hed been accidentally struck by a vehicle.
The Sheriffs Office Traffic Safety Unit Crash Team and the Criminal Investigation Division were called in to investigate the accident.
The investigation revealed the following: The boy, Zain Blaney, 2933 New Blockhouse Road, his father, Matthew Dale Blaney, 24, same address, and the boys grandfather, Michael Dale Blaney, 47, same address, walked across the street to a neighbors residence to look at a used truck they were interested in purchasing.
The owner of the truck, David Edward Johnston VI, 19, 2930 New Blockhouse Road, told investigators that he got in the truck, turned the ignition key over and the truck lurched forward, striking Zain, Matthew and Michael Blaney, according to the report.
Zain Blaney, who was standing directly in front of the vehicle, was pulled under the truck and dragged 20 to 30 feet. Matthew Blaney, who was standing to the left front of the vehicle, was struck and pinned between the vehicle and a fence. Michael Blaney was standing to the right front of the vehicle and was not injured
Matthew and Michael Blaney immediately picked up Zain and rushed him by personal vehicle to Blount Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later. Matthew was treated for minor injuries at BMH and released.
The vehicle, a 1992 Dodge Dakota, was previously wrecked and had a damaged front end, no grill or bumper and was not considered road-worthy.
The driver of the truck, Johnston, was not injured. The Sheriffs Office is continuing the investigation. Funeral arrangements for Zain Blaney are being handled by Smith Funeral & Cremation Service

The seymour times is a joke. just a bunch of junk - it is run by a weirdo with a pony tail and skinny as a rail.
at least the herald prints the real news instead of just free articles from ad service places.

Joe Karl twists the news to promote his own agenda. His idea of "reporting" is to insert his opinion into the article. He doesn't understand the concept of unbiased reporting.
