Morton, MS (June 16, 2021) – On Tuesday, June 15, a teen was killed in a pedestrian accident in an unidentified area in Morton.
According to officials, the accident happened when a 13-year-old was walking in the area when he was struck by a passenger vehicle. The vehicle ran off the roadway and into the grass when it struck the child. The vehicle then came to a rest after it collided with a church.
Paramedics, fire crews, and numerous other local responders were immediately dispatched to the scene. The 13-year-old boy who was struck was tragically pronounced dead at the scene due to traumatic injuries.
The driver of the vehicle has since been identified as 35-year-old Geran Rae Rojas. He has since been charged with driving without a license, not having insurance, and fleeing the scene of an accident.
