The boy dashed from behind a truck and ran directly against the side of the automobile driven by J. D. Bond, 24 years old, Lexington, KY, the police learned.

The driver was paroled by Judge Henry I. Fox after a technical charge of assault and battery was registered against him. The trial was set for September 15. The charge will be changed to a technical one of manslaughter on that date it was announced.
