Authorities are investigating after a 2-year-old boy was hit by a car and killed in Pender County.
The Highway Patrol says the boy was killed Saturday at around 8:30 p.m. at a private home.
Officials say 28-year-old Stevie Wallace was backing up and struck the child. The toddler was taken to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
