Funeral arrangements set for child killed in accident

WHITESBURG, Ky. (WYMT) - We have learned more information about a 5-year-old boy who died in a freak accident.

Officials say Logan Howard was driving a battery-powered toy Jeep when he ran under a trampoline.

School officials tell us he was a student at Letcher Elementary and was a cancer survivor.

The principal at the school said, "Logan was one who could be counted on for a hug as he passed in the hallway and a bright spot for all who had the privilege of working with him."

Officials say grief counselors were at the school Monday.
Funeral arrangements for Howard have been finalized.

Visitation for the child will be held on Wednesday at 2pm at the Jeremiah Missionary Baptist Church.

His funeral will be Thursday at 1pm, also at the church.
