DENTON, Md.- An 11-year-old Denton boy is dead after being run over by a pickup truck on Monday morning.

Denton police say that at around 7:10 a.m. officers were dispatched to an accident that had occurred on Sixth Street at Market Street. A preliminary investigation revealed that Wesley Jones, 37, of Denton, was driving a Ford F250 pickup northbound on Sixth Street in the area of Market Street. Police say Sinjin Coen, 11, was in the area with some other juveniles, apparently playing. According to police, Coen ran into the street and into the path of the pickup when he was struck.

Caroline County EMS and Denton firefighters responded and attempted to render aide but Coen's injuries were too severe and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Denton police continue to investigate the accident and are being assisted by the Maryland State Police C. R. A. S. H. team. Charges are not pending at this time, according to police.
