Lodi police said the death of a little boy hit by a vehicle driven by his father was accidental.
Police responded to Tree Court about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday on a report of a child that had been struck by a vehicle. The three-year-old boy hit by the vehicle was transported to Lodi Memorial Hospital.
The child, who suffered severe head trauma, was later pronounced dead. A police press release said his death appears to be an accident.
Still, the circumstances surrounding the death are being investigated by the Lodi Police Department Major Accident and Investigation Team.
