DENHAM SPRINGS- A man investigators said was driving home from work when he ran over a child in his subdivision has been charged with negligent homicide.

Deputies arrested Brad Welch, 32, in the death of 6-year old Tyler Myers last month in the Lakes at Belle Terre subdivision.

Deputies say Welch was on his cell phone as he was pulling into the driveway of his home. He told them he felt a bump, and after he got out of the vehicle saw Myers lying on the ground.

Investigators said Myers had been playing on his scooter in Welch's driveway when he was run over.

Welch is currently in the Livingston Parish Jail on a $25,000 bond.
