It was revealed by the autopsy the boy suffered a fracture at the base of the skull and other head injuries; also six broken ribs. The injuries were serious enough to have caused almost instant death, the coroner told reporters at the conclusion of the autopsy.

A piece of the boy's skull near the temple was removed to relieve the pressure on the brain. However, he failed to rally.

Fleming reported the accident to the police about three hours after it occurred. His auto struck the child while the boy was sliding in Main Street, Fleming stated. He did not stop his car because he did not believe he had hurt him. Later when he heard the boy was injured he went to police headquarters and reported the matter, he said. What was left of the boy's sled was taken to police headquarters after the accident. The sled was smashed to splinters. Surviving besides his parents are the following brother and sisters, John, Margaret, Earl, Elizabeth, Bernice, Gladys, Dorothy, Robert and Howard.
