KING GEORGE COUNTY, Va. — A two-year-old boy was killed after he was thrown from a dirt bike and struck by vehicle. The two-vehicle fatal crash happened at 8:19 p.m. Wednesday on Comorn Road, near Igo Road, according to Virginia State Police.

“De’Shon T. Brown, 21, was riding a youth dirt bike with his two-year-old son. As Brown attempted to cross Comorn Road, he crashed the bike in the roadway,” a State Police spokeswoman said. “The two-year-old was thrown from the bike and into the travel lane.”

A 22-year-old driver of a 2007 BMW, traveling north on Comorn Road, ran off the road to the right in an attempt to avoid hitting the child and father, police said.

But the child, identified as Brayden C. Brown of Colonial Beach, Va., was struck and killed.

The child’s father was flown to Inova Fairfax Hospital where he was being treated for life-threatening injuries.
