- Lawton, OK. – An 18- month old little boy in Lawton is dead after being ran over by a car.

It happened Monday morning in the 200 block of North West 16th street.

Captain Craig Akard with the Lawton Police says a woman went to leave in her vehicle when a disturbance broke out between her and the parents of the child.
