On September 3, 2017 at 5:49 p.m., the Price County Sheriff’s Office received a call from the Taylor County Sheriff’s Office, who reported they had received a 911 call from an unidentified female subject who reported someone had been run over by a vehicle and was bleeding. Officers responded to a location in the Township of Hill from which the 911 call was made.
At 6:01 p.m., a second call was received from Taylor County reporting the patient was a 15 month old child who had been run over in the driveway. CPR was in progress at that time.
