A tragedy Saturday night in Hastings left one little boy dead after he was hit and dragged by a car.
Nebraska State Patrol says it happened Saturday sometime between 8:00 and 8:30 pm.
Authorities say 18-year-old Dusty Consbruck was driving east on 7th Street and when two-year-old Tryson Ruff ran into the street.
Consbruck hit the toddler, dragging him a short distance.
Tryson's brother, Edward Boutin, says Tryson was playing just before the accident occurred. He says Tryson was waiting to leave the house and go to a park. That's when he tried to cross the street.
"He got out the car and ran across. He went to go get my mom, and my aunt screamed 'Tryson stop!' When my mom turned around he got hit by a car," Boutin said.
Emergency Crews took the 2-year-old to Mary Lanning Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Now, Boutin said it's about remembering his little brother.
"He was just a loving little baby, never did anything bad," he said.
Nebraska State Patrol Sergeant Darwin Daily said these kinds of accidents, involving small children, don't happen often. But, he said this time of year can be particularly dangerous.
"There are a lot of kids out on the streets this time of year with school being out and nice summer weather," he said. "There's a lot more traffic out on the roads. We're probably fortunate that we don't have more bad accidents with children in the road."
NSP said no charges have been filed.
