A 2-year-old boy, Carter Cook, was killed around 10 p.m. Thursday when his father, Chad Cook, struck the child with his vehicle in a residential driveway along Les Williams Road in Monroe County, said Trooper Nick Hale, public information officer for the Kentucky State Police Post 15 area, based in Columbia.

“They called 911, and the child was immediately transported to the Monroe County Medical Center, where he was pronounced deceased by the Monroe County coroner,” Hale said.

He said Friday afternoon the father was not impaired and no charges against him were anticipated.
