A toddler was killed Thursday night in Meridian when the car he was riding in went off the road and struck a tree.
Several other people in the car were transported to a local hospital.
Lauderdale County coroner Clayton Cobler says the young boy was riding in the back of the car and was pinned between the vehicle and a tree. He died instantly.
The wreck took place around 7 p.m. on Highway 39 near Briarwood Road. No names were immediately released.
