Atlanta: 2 Children Run Over by Food Truck ‎

By Angel K. Brooks | The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Two children were injured when they were run over by a food truck Thursday night in southeast Atlanta, Channel 2 Action News reported.

The 10-year-old has injuries that could be life-threatening, the report said, while the 7-year-old has a leg injury.

The incident happened in the 700 block of Eliose Court.

Police and witnesses told Channel 2 that the boys were hanging onto the food truck as the driver attempted to leave, yelling for everyone to get off the truck as he started to pull away. The boys jumped, apparently fell under the vehicle and were run over, authorities said.

No charges are expected against the driver, police said.
