A 9-year-old boy was killed Monday morning when he was hit by a dump truck in Karns.

Eyewitnesses told the Knox County Sheriff's Office that Logan Feichtner, 9, ran into the road to retrieve an apple and was struck by a Turf Masters dump truck.

The driver of the truck tried to swerve to avoid hitting the boy, but he was not able to avoid hitting him. He will not face any charges in the accident.

Feichtner was playing with his older brother and two other boys in the parking lot of the apartments where they live. He attended Karns Elementary School.
