New details: Toddler killed in side-by-side accident in WBR

WEST BATON ROUGE — A toddler was killed in a deadly accident involving a side-by-side UTV, according to officials.

The West Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office said it was around 1:30 a.m. June 3 when deputies responded to a wreck involving a UTV/side-by-side. The crash happened in a field adjacent to the State Capitol Raceway off Hwy. 190 near Rougon Rd.

A three-year-old girl was injured and transported to the hospital, but she did not survive.

So far in their investigation, WBRSO says it appears juveniles were operating the UTV when it crashed and overturned. There were three others on the ATV at the time of the crash.

The investigation is ongoing, but WBRSO said so far, it appears to be a tragic accident, nothing that could result in charges or arrests.

The name of the toddler has not been released at this time.
