LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A child has died from injuries received in a crash in Bullitt County Sunday night. 

Thomas Cochran, 8, was pronounced dead around 2 a.m. at Norton Children's Hospital in downtown Louisville. 

According to the Bullitt County Sheriff's Department, the crash happened around 8:30 p.m. on Zoneton Road near Sunshine Drive in the Sunshine Acres subdivision in northern Bullitt County.
