The accident occurred at approximately 3:30 p.m. on October 10 at West Baltimore Avenue and North Pecan Street in Pinebluff.
According to Sanderson, Henderson sustained an injury to the back of his head upon falling from the side of a 1998 Chevrolet pickup truck that his father, Leo Utley, was driving. Sanderson said he struck the back of his head on the asphalt.
