Toddler killed

Authorities in Moore County say the two-year-old grandson of gubernatorial candidate George Little died after he was accidentally hit by his baby-sitter's car.

The state Highway Patrol says Lawana Jones had left George Brampton Little inside the house with her two teenage daughters Monday while she started her station wagon.

An investigator says George ran out of the house and got behind the car and Jones backed over him. The accident happened at Jones' home. George died at FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital. No charges have been filed.

George was the son of Wes and Teresa Little. Republican gubernatorial candidate George Little is Wes Little's father.
