Posted: Updated:

SPRINGFIELD - In an update to a story WAND brought you last August, a Springfield man is facing multiple charges in connection with a crash that left one child dead.

The Sangamon County Circuit Clerk's Office says Troy Dennison, 26, faces reckless conduct and endangering the life or health of a child charges.  The Sangamon County Sheriff's Office says Dennison was involved in a crash at the intersection of Mechanicsburg/Illiopolis Road and Mt. Auburn Road on August 17.

According to authorities, Dennison was riding on a lawn tractor, driven by a 10-year-old boy, when the tractor was struck by a pick-up truck.  Police say the driver of the truck and Dennison were not harmed in the crash, but the child received life-threatening injuries, and was taken to St. Louis Children's Hospital where he would later pass away from his injuries.

We will provide more information as it becomes available.
