Police have identified the 7-year-old boy who died after falling from a vehicle headed to participate in the Annapolis Independence Day parade.
Police said Friday that Kyle Aldridge, of Baltimore, was getting off a moving trailer when he fell and was struck by the tire of the trailer.
It happened Thursday evening on Amos Garrett Boulevard, where a line was forming to join the parade.
The boy was taken to Anne Arundel Medical Center, where police say he was pronounced dead.
Police say Aldridge's grandfather was driving the van at the time, but initial information indicates that driver error was not a contributing factor in the accident.
