A toddler has died after running from a church parking lot onto a highway on Wednesday evening, say investigators.

Louisiana State Police identified the victim as 2-year-old Kaleb Dyson, of Kentwood.

Troopers reported the incident happened on LA 10 near LA 1058 in Roseland around 8:45 p.m.

Senior Tpr. Dustin Dwight said that the investigation as of now shows a large group of choir members was standing in the parking lot of Mt. Canaan Missionary Baptist Church, when Dyson ran from the parking lot toward the highway.

He said the boy’s mother chased after him to try to stop him from running in to the road, but couldn’t get to him in time and the boy was hit by a minivan.

According to Dwight, an ambulance rushed the child to Hood Memorial Hospital, but he died from his injuries not long after arriving there.

The driver of the minivan has not been charged but the investigation is ongoing.
