WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - A 14-year-old Wichita boy has died seven years after he was hit by a semi following a junior football game at a local park, his family says.

According to his obituary, LaDale Washington Jr. died on November 18. Two of his relatives told KAKE News that he died of complications stemming from the accident on September 26, 2015, when LaDale was just 7 years old.

It was a Saturday afternoon when a junior football game at Linwood Park took a heartbreaking turn. A Wichita Police Department supervisor said in 2015 that LaDale had gone into the street to retrieve a football, not realizing there was a semi with a trailer driving by. 

LaDale suffered massive head injuries in the accident.  

Family members said LaDale had been in and out of the hospital in the years following the accident and had been receiving in-home care. A GoFundMe has been set up to help his family.
