18-Month-Old Kansas Boy Dies after Being Run Over

Associated Press - June 7, 2013 12:43 pm

Wichita police say an 18-month-old boy tripped before he was run over by a family friend’s truck.

The victim was identified Friday as Abraham Rostro. Police say he died Thursday evening after he was dropped off with his father and three other children by a family friend.

Police say as the children crossed the street, Abraham apparently tripped and the pickup driver didn’t see him. After the child was run over, the driver immediately realized what happened, stopped and tried to help him.

Police say Abraham’s death is a tragic accident and no charges are expected.
