JOHNSON COUNTY — A 2-year-old boy died after they were struck by an employee of a mobile home park Monday evening in Johnson County, according to the sheriff.

The child was struck just before 5 p.m. in the Winterbrook Mobile Home Park, Johnson County Sheriff Duane Burgess said.

A 59-year-old Greenwood man who works for the mobile home park struck the boy, identified as Isaiah Bonds, Burgess said.

The mobile home park is near County Road 400 West and County Line Road, just outside of Greenwood.

The man stayed at the scene, Burgess said.

According to a crash report provided by the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, the driver told police he approached the intersection of L Court and Shady Brook Heights and slowed to a complete stop. He said he looked both ways and thought it was clear for him to continue driving.

He felt he ran over something after he began to turn south on Shady Brook Heights and got out of the truck. He then realized he hit the child and began yelling for help, according to the report.

The driver told police he could not see the child in the roadway due to the height of his truck.

The man was transported to an area hospital for evaluation where he underwent a blood test. Results from a toxicology test are pending, the report said.
