Posted: Updated:

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office has finished its investigation regarding the fatal accident that claimed the life of 4-year-old Mason Geist last month.

The accident happened on Cavelti Road in the Spring Valley area south of Gardnerville.

Undersheriff Paul Howell says the investigation revealed no drugs or alcohol were involved when Geist and his father using a U-Haul during the February 24th incident.

He says the U-Haul did not have any mechanical malfunction; it's believed the boy shifted the truck from park into neutral, causing it to go into motion, which threw the boy from the cab and then was run over by the truck.

Geist was transported to Carson Valley Medical Center where he later died.

The report will now be forwarded to the Douglas County District Attorney for final review.
