HOLLY SPRINGS, N.C. — Holly Springs police on Tuesday released the name of a toddler struck and killed by a four-wheeler that his father was operating in their back yard Sunday.

Christian Mondragon was struck after darting in front of the four-wheeler driven by Oscar Mondragon off Bass Lake Road, said Mark Andrews, a spokesman for Holly Springs.

The 18-month-old boy's head struck the concrete when he fell, and he died after being flown to Duke University Hospital.

Andrews called the death a tragic accident. Police have not filed any charges.
