WINSTON COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) -- A three-year-old child has died after apparently being struck by a vehicle Friday, according to the coroner.

Coroner Scott Gregory said it happened at 3:30 p.m. Friday at a home on Estes Road in the county.

The child, Jaylen Jones, was playing outside in his family's yard when a relative accidentally ran over the child, Gregory said.

Paramedics transported Jones to the Winston Medical Center.

The child was then airlifted to Jackson for further treatment, but died at approximately 8 p.m. of complications from the accident.

Gregory said an autopsy will be performed Monday to determine the exact cause of death.

No charges are expected to be filed because of the nature of the accident.
