Child Run Over By Father's Truck and Dies
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - State troopers say an Orlando toddler has died after being run over by a pickup truck driven by his father.
According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Jose Manuel Cruz was driving out of a driveway Thursday afternoon when he realized he had forgotten something and put the truck in reverse so he could return to the house.
Cruz's 2-year-old son Prince was being watched by a 16-year-old baby-sitter. Troopers say that somehow the toddler got outside and walked behind the reversing truck without Cruz seeing him.
The child was pronounced dead at the scene. Troopers say the crash remains under investigation.
