Police say a 35-year-old driver and a seven-year-old passenger were in the car that was struck by the tractor trailer and were sent to Brooks Memorial Hospital for treatment and the child was pronounced deceased at the hospital. The operator was treated for non-life threatening injuries. No other injuries were reported.
