A two-year-old boy was killed Saturday after he was run over by a vehicle in Redding.
The boy was playing in the yard of a house near the 12000 block Los Osos Street around 1 p.m. The 25-year-old female driver went to back the 2007 Jeep out of the driveway when the child wandered into the path of the vehicle and was struck.
Emergency responders attempted to revive the child on-scene but were unsuccessful.
Police will continue to investigate the incident but have determined that neither drugs nor alcohol were a factor in the accident.
