Child dies following collision between scooter and car
ORANGE - A child has died after doctors removed him from life support following a collision between his scooter and a car.
Shari Pulliam with Texas Family and Protective Services told KFDM News doctors at UTMB in Galveston removed 7-year-old Evan Villadsen from life support at about 1:15 a.m. Thursday.
Pulliam says doctors kept him alive to allow his family to donate his organs.
Police in Orange say Villadsen rode his self-propelled Thomas the Train scooter into the path of a car at about 9:20 p.m. Sunday on Bluebonnett Street in Orange.
The driver stopped after the accident. Investigators say the driver couldn't avoid the child and wasn't charged.
