Cedar Falls police have released the name of a 10-year-old boy who died in an accident. Police were called to the scene of an accident at a city intersection Monday afternoon. When officers arrived, they found the boy, Tristen Weidman, trapped under a motor vehicle.
An initial investigation revealed that children had been playing in the minivan, which at some point slipped into gear. Police say it appears Weidman attempted to stop the rolling vehicle. He fell to the ground and was run over. The boy was taken to a local hospital, and later died from his injuries.
