Toddler falls under truck’s tires during birthday party

NAVASOTA  — A 2-year-old Houston boy died after being accidentally run over by his uncle during the child’s birthday celebration, officials said.

Joseph Donis died from head trauma at a Bryan hospital after being flown by helicopter from a home south of Navasota where the accident occurred on Saturday.

Grimes County Sheriff Don Sowell said Joseph’s uncle, Enoe Sandoval, was moving his truck from the carport to give Joseph and his sister more room to play.

Joseph apparently tripped over a toy and fell into the vehicle’s path, Sowell said.

Sowell said the death was accidental and no charges will be filed.

The boy’s parents, Israel and Gladys Donis, were at the home when the accident occurred. The family had gathered to celebrate Joseph’s April 8th birthday.
