Posted: Sunday, April 27, 2003

ANCHORAGE (AP) A 5-year-old Sterling boy suffered a broken leg after he apparently fell out of a moving car and under the rear tire last week.

Alaska State Troopers say the boy was riding with his mother, Christina L. Sipes, 26, in a 1986 Chevrolet Suburban at about 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Sipes was driving out of the Sterling post office when the boy fell out and was run over by the rear tire.

He was transported to a hospital, where he was admitted for treatment and surgery.

Troopers continue to investigate the incident.
