DPS Investigates Bloomington Toddlers Death
A Bloomington family is left grieving after two year old Bentley Baladez was killed late Thursday night.
DPS officials say around 11 pm as the family was heading out to grab a bite to eat the 15 year old Aunt of Bentley was behind the driver’s wheel and believed the toddler was inside the house as she backed out of the driveway. She ran over Baladez who was then rushed to DeTar Navarro in Victoria by his grandparents. The toddler was later pronounced dead.
The mother of the child was distraught and could be heard screaming “What did I do to deserve this.” Other family members say they understand the incident was just a tragic accident. DPS is investigating.
The family needs financial assistance with Bentley’s funeral expenses because of this unexpected tragedy. They’ve started a GoFundMe account to accept donations.
