Rock Island County Coroner Brian Gustafson confirmed late Tuesday that his office is investigating the death of a child that occurred Tuesday in Silvis.
Silvis Police and the crash reconstruction team from the Rock Island County Sheriff’s Department also are taking part in the investigation, he said.
The incident that caused the child’s death occurred approximately 7 p.m., but Gustafson did not have the exact time available.
“This is a tragic incident,” Gustafson said, adding that the child’s name and age would not be released until later in the investigation.
