Boy struck, killed in road accident

A 2-year-old boy was fatally struck by a car on a rural road in Clay County near Glyndon, Minn., Saturday afternoon.

The victim, pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics, was identified as Gage Jacobson, son of Jon Jacobson and Jennifer Barnes of rural Glyndon.

Apparently, the boy, who had been out riding with his father on a four-wheeler, darted into the road and was struck, Sheriff Bill Bergquist said.

The driver of the vehicle was identified by the Sheriff’s Office as Donald Krabbenhoft of rural Downer, Minn.

The car-pedestrian accident occurred one mile north of Highway 10 on 17th Street North.

The victim was taken to the Ramsey County medical examiner’s office. The accident remains under investigation by the Clay County Sheriff’s Office and the Minnesota State Patrol.

“We have a few more things to check out,” Bergquist said.
