Preliminary investigation revealed a 10 year old boy was sitting on the rear bumper of a red 1974 Step Van used for farm use, while his father Joshua Lavy (44) of Arcanum was backing the vehicle out of a barn. While backing the vehicle from the barn onto uneven ground, the boy fell off the rear bumper and his legs were ran over by the tandem wheels. He was then transported to Dayton Children’s Hospital for his injuries.
