A 4-year-old boy from Brandon is dead following a collision earlier this week. 

The Brandon Police Service says the incident happened just before 3:30 p.m. on Monday in the 2400 block of Victoria Avenue in Brandon. 

Witnesses say the boy ran from a business parking lot on the north side of Victoria Avenue and into the side of a trailer being towed by a half-ton truck. 

The young boy was rushed to Brandon Regional Health Centre and then transported by STARS to the Winnipeg Children's Hospital in serious condition.

He succumbed to his injuries Tuesday night. 

The investigation is ongoing.
