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.

    Please Please learn from this tragedy and put your child in a properly secured car seat. Not all things can be explained or prevented only God can know all things and why they happen but we can do our part and use the commmon sense He gave us. Learn from life. Buckle Up. Especially make sure your children are buckled. Praying for the family of this child.
