A child was killed and his father injured when a truck hit them while they were walking on the street in Henderson Sunday afternoon.

Police said 5-year-old Jayden Chad Stokes and his father, 22-year-old Richard Stokes, were walking along the 600 block of East Montgomery Street around 1:15 p.m

Investigators determined 47-year-old Vincent Gregory was driving a 1998 GMC truck when he lost control, hit a telephone pole, collided with the father and son, and then came to rest in a tree.

All three people were transported to a hospital, where the child was later pronounced dead.

Gregory is charged with felony death by motor vehicle, driving while impaired, and driving with a revoked license.
