Child dies after accidentally struck by father's vehicle in Lodi

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.
