On Sunday evening March 13 at around 6 p.m., a 4 year old wandered away from the Simpson River fishing pier and into traffic in the westbound lanes of U.S. Highway 90. James Nance of Pace was traveling in the outside westbound lane and the 2007 Ford Explorer he was driving struck the child’s right side.
The child is in critical condition at a local hospital. Alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
