SC police investigating traffic death of toddler

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina officials are investigating the traffic death of 2-year-old Greenville boy.

Greenville County deputy coroner Kent Dill told The Greenville News that Austin J. Septon died Friday from injuries he got earlier in the week when he was hit by a pickup truck.

Dill said Austin was crossing the road with some other children at a relative's house. When the children went back across the street, little Austin lagged behind. Dill said the driver who had waited for the other children did not see Austin when he decided to cross the street.

Highway Patrol Cpl. Brian McDougald said the accident is under investigation.
