Albemarle, NC — According to the North Carolina State Patrol, 72-year-old William Loy Bowers accidentally ran over his wife and a 2-year-old child the couple had stopped to help.

William and his wife, 62-year-old Myrtle, were driving along Stony Gap Road Tuesday afternoon when they spotted the lone toddler walking in the road. William pulled into a nearby driveway and Myrtle got out of the truck to help the girl.

As Myrtle was walking back to the truck with the child, she apparently stopped at the rear of the vehicle to ask a neighbor if she knew who the kid belonged to. William, thinking his wife had crossed the street, began backing out of the driveway.

A nearby witness saw what was about to happen and yelled for William to stop, but because he had the windows rolled up and the AC on, William heard nothing. He continued to back out, pinning his wife and the child underneath the truck.

Troopers said William, who thought he had driven over something in the median, then pulled forward and backed over the two a second time.

The toddler, identified as Neveah Andrea Tyson, died at the scene. Myrtle was airlifted to Charlotte Medical Center, where she is listed in stable condition.

Troopers said Neveah had just been laid down for a nap at her parent’s home, which was nearby, when she got up and wandered out of the house to follow her two older brothers who had gone fishing. She apparently became disoriented and was trying to make her way back home at the time of the accident.

No charges have been filed at this point.
