Child dies when inadvertently run over by brother in Linda

A 3-year-old boy died when he was accidentally run over by his teen brother in the Yuba County town of Linda.

The California Highway Patrol said that at about 3 p.m. Monday the little boy was playing in the parking lot in front of his residence in the 6000 block of Alpine Way. His 19-year-old brother was stopped in his pickup and speaking with their mother who was outside the vehicle.

When the older sibling ended his conversation with his mother, the teen pulled his pickup forward to leave the parking lot.

At that point, the driver could feel "an impact at the rear of his vehicle," according to a CHP report. The 3-year-old, who was transported to Rideout Memorial Hospital, died of his injuries.
