July 9, 2014

Charges are still pending in an incident that involved a two year old boy in Elberton being run over.

The investigation into the case has been turned over to the Georgia State Patrol Post 17 in Washington, GA.

As reported by, the investigation was still on-going as of Monday afternoon.

Sergeant 1st Class W.P. Waller with the GSP said the incident was first reported at 11:03pm Friday night when a 2000 Cadillac Escalade, driven by 48-year-old Jackie Lee Burton ran over the two year old.

According to a statement from Waller, “the grandmother believes that she had put the car in park, but she had left it in neutral or reverse and got out and was getting the two grandchildren out, and it backed over the 2-year-old.”

The child was life-flighted to Greenville Memorial Hospital in South Carolina, and as of Monday, Waller said the child was doing much better.
