MOBILE, ALABAMA – Mobile police are investigating the cause of Saturday’s car accident in west Mobile that killed an 8-year-old boy and injured his mother. Tyler Autry and his mother were struck by a 50-year-old woman driving Toyota Camry while the two attempted to cross Zeigler Circle West around 10:15am on Saturday. The driver apparently also struck two parked cars in the same incident.
The mother’s injuries were not life-threatening, and she was taken to the hospital in an ambulance. Her son had to be airlifted to the University of South Alabama Medical Center by helicopter, where he died Sunday. Officer Christopher Levy, spokesman for Mobile police, said that neither excess speed nor alcohol appears to have been involved in Saturday’s accident. He did not release the name of the driver of the Camry.
Mobile police continue to investigate the cause of this fatal car accident, and they encourage anyone with information about this incident to call the Mobile Police Dept. (208-7211), Crime Stoppers (208-7000), or send a text including “CRIME 411” to 274637.
