A 2 1/2-year-old boy is dead after being run over by a pickup truck driven by his father while working at the Sunday River Ski Area.
Forty-two-year-old James Bennett of the Bethel area was doing maintenance work on the Starlight Trail behind the Grand Summit Hotel when he sat the boy, Wyatt Bennett, down on a wood pile while he moved his truck, according to state police.
The boy wandered off and was crushed by one of the vehicle’s
tires, authorities said.
The father, who is a local emergency medical worker, used his radio to called for help but the boy died at the scene.
