    1 toddler killed, elderly driver not arrested or charged April 14, 2014 Buckley Pickup Accidentally Drives on Trail Kills Red Wagon Toddler In Buckley, Washington State (near Tacoma) 2 year old toddler  Lincoln Pearson died after his red wagon pulled by his father was hit by a Ford Ranger pickup driven by an un-named 78 year old driver who for some unexplained reason, apparently lost control, left the road and drove 500 ft onto a paved walking trail next to the road until it hit the wagon and was stopped when it crashed into a telephone pole. The driver got out of the truck, looked at the boy, offered no help and returned. Although he told the police he was aware of what he had done, he offered no explanation for the accident, and police ruled it was not related to alcohol or drugs. He could have been charged if he had been under orders by his doctor not to drive. There was not enough evidence to arrest or charge the man with a deliberate attack.
