Update: A child in Livingston Parish who died after accidentally being run over by his mother has been identified.

The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office said 5-year-old Justice Bowlin, Denham Springs, was playing in a driveway on Chickasaw Drive around noon today when his mother, Jerri Lockett, accidentally ran over him in a Nissan Sentra.

Bowlin was treated by first responders from Fire Protection District #5 and then transported to a Baton Rouge area hospital where he was pronounced dead.

While this is an ongoing investigation, police said they believe this was a tragic accident, and criminal charges do not appear to be forthcoming.
