HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — Authorities say a 3-year-old West Virginia boy is dead after he fell under the wheel of a farm wagon during a hayride in western Maryland.

Washington County Sheriff’s Deputy First Class Carly Hose tells The Journal of Martinsburg, West Virginia, that Samuel Choi fell off the side of the wagon and was run over Sunday afternoon north of Hagerstown.

Sheriff’s Detective Howard Ward tells The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown that the child was climbing on the wagon. Ward says there were six or seven people on the hayride.
