COLUMBUS, Ohio – Police in central Ohio say a 4-year-old boy who’d been playing in a parked pickup was run over by the truck and died.
Columbus police say said boy somehow shifted the pickup into gear, and it rolled over him after he fell or jumped out Thursday morning.
Sgt. Isaac Bridges told The Columbus Dispatch the boy’s brother had pulled the truck into a driveway and gone inside a house, and no keys were in the vehicle at the time. Bridges said the boy’s father witnessed the accident.
His identity wasn’t immediately released.
