A Williams man accidentally runs over 6-year-old Anthony David Murillo as he played in the driveway of the Pinewood Apartments complex. 
According to the Williams Police Department, the accident occurred on Saturday October 5, 2013 at approximately 5:45 p.m.  
The seventy-year-old driver, identified as Williams Resident, Ralph William Dolbow, was driving a 2008 Ford F-150 pick-up. Dolbow had just backed out of a parking space and began to drive north within the complex when he failed to see Murillo playing within the driveway with a friend. Dolbow’s truck struck Murillo and brushed his seven year old friend. The seven year old was not severely injured. 
Murillo suffered severe injuries and despite attempts by the Williams Police Department, Williams Fire Department and Enloe Paramedics, to save the young boy, he was pronounced dead at the scene. 
“Dolbow, was visibly shaken and upset following the collision,” said Williams Police Chief, Jim Saso, “he has fully cooperated with the Police Department.”
“The investigation into this accident continues, and at this time, it does not appear that alcohol or drugs were involved” Saso added.
The California Highway Patrol is aiding the Williams Police Department with the investigation. 
The Williams School District was notified Saturday evening and have made counselors available this morning to all Students. 
“Preliminary, it appears this may have been a tragic accident. No words can console a parent for the loss of a child. Events like this affect many people throughout the community. It’s a sad and difficult time for everyone and our thoughts are with the families of those involved.” Said Williams Police Chief, Jim Saso. 
The Anthony Murillo Memorial Fund has been established at Umpqua Bank to help with the cost of burial and memorial services. Friends of the Murillo Family appreciate your help and support.
