A two-year-old Fort Dodge girl died Tuesday afternoon after being struck by a pickup truck in a residential section of Fort Dodge. The Iowa State Patrol identified the victim as Alexia Blunt.
Reportedly a pickup operated by 25 year old Garret Armstrong of Fort Dodge was talking Alexia’s mother, Jenny Blunt along the roadside at 1207 20th Avenue South in Fort Dodge at the time. Armstrong did not see Alexia Blunt approach the driver’s side.
When the Armstrong pickup pulled away, the child fell underneath the driver’s side rear tire and was run over.
