Tyler Boy Killed in Fatal Wreck

A fatal wreck happened early Saturday afternoon on Montgomery Gardens Street, that's just off of loop 271 in Tyler.

DPS troopers say 7-year old Michael Rucker was traveling in an Isuzu rodeo with his grandmother, when another car rear-ended them, causing the Isuzu to flip over.

Michael was taken to a Tyler hospital and pronounced dead. His grandmother escaped with minor injuries.

Investigators say the other driver, a 16-year old boy, was distracted when he ran into the Isuzu killing Rucker. DPS troopers say the accident is still under investigation.
