Mesa, AZ (February 3, 2020) – A 6-year-old child died after being hit by a truck in Mesa near the area of Power Road and Jensen Street.

At that point, the back end of the vehicle jumped the curb and struck the child. Paramedics arrived at the scene shortly after the crash occurred and transported the child to a local area hospital, where they were later pronounced dead.
The accident remains under investigation.

The nature of truck accidents can make injuries and property damage much more serious.
