COTTAGEVILLE, W. Va. (WSAZ) - A family is mourning the loss of a 3-year-old who was run over and killed in his own driveway.

The accident occurred around 9:30 p.m. on Thursday in the Cottageville area.

Braxton Conley died after he was hit in the driveway of a home in the vicinity of Ole Mill Road.

Braxton's family described him as "a happy go lucky little boy" who was playing in the leaves earlier in the day at his grandfather's home.

"One thing about it though, he's up with the good lord he's up with Jesus now and he don't have to worry now about no suffering. That's where he's at. He was an innocent child because of somebody's negligence he got hurt and died. I'm sorry but that's the way i feel," Carolyn Starcher, of Cottageville, said.

It is unknown at this time if any charges will be filed against the driver.
