WILMINGTON, N.C. - Authorities are investigating after a 2-year-old boy was hit by a car and killed in Pender County.

The Highway Patrol says the boy was killed Saturday at around 8:30 p.m. at a private home.

Officials say 28-year-old Stevie Wallace was backing up and struck the child. The toddler was taken to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Authorities are still investigating the situation, but no charges have been filed. Troopers have said there was a large gathering at the home that night and that they didn't know if Wallace and the boy were related.
