Mize First Responders and Smith County Deputies responded to a tragic accident on Sunday.

At approximately 2:20 PM today, the Smith County Sheriff’s Office received a distressing 911 call from the Mize area reporting a tragic incident involving a 6-year-old child struck by a vehicle in her driveway. Despite the immediate response from first responders and deputies, regrettably, the child had already succumbed to her injuries upon their arrival.

Out of respect for the family’s privacy during this difficult time, Sheriff Joel Houston said in a release that further details will be disclosed as the Smith County Sheriff’s Office conducts a thorough investigation into this accident.

“We extend our deepest gratitude to the dedicated first responders, Emergency Management, and Paramedics for their swift and compassionate response to the scene,” Houston said. “We urge everyone to hold the family and friends of this precious little girl in their prayers during this profoundly difficult time.”
