Man charged with Criminally Negligent Homicide in death of 2-year-old in crash

A 2-year-old boy was killed Friday night in a crash in Dallas.

It happened just before 9:00 p.m. in the area of Ledbetter Drive and Duncanville Road, Dallas police said.

The child’s 19-year-old mom was driving west, in the left turn lane, in the area of 4900 Ledbetter Drive at Duncanville Road. Her son was in the driver’s side back seat next to his child safety seat, police said.

28-year-old Joshua C. Allen was driving a truck north on Duncanville Road, approaching Ledbetter Drive in the right lane. Allen was speeding and ran the stop sign. He ran into the back driver’s side of the woman’s vehicle as it entered the intersection to make a legal turn, police said.

The child was pronounced dead at Methodist Central Hospital shortly after he arrived.

Allen is being held on a charge of Criminal Negligent Homicide at Lew Sterrett Jail.

His bond is set at $100,000.
