A 3-year-old boy was killed in Jackson County after a visitor’s vehicle backed over him in his parents’ driveway.

Braxton Conley was killed in the incident Thursday in Cottageville, said Sheriff Tony Boggs.

Boggs said visitors had come to the boy’s home to visit his family and when they left everyone thought the boy was inside watching TV. An adult male driver did not see the boy behind his vehicle and backed over him.
