Oxon Hill Child Dies after Being Run Over by Family Car

By Alpert Schreyer on February 28, 2013

On Wednesday night, February 20th, 2013, a little boy, age 3, was fatally injured after being run over by his family’s car. As reported by The Washington Post, in an article dated Thursday, February 21st, 2013, the incident remains under investigation, but what is known so far is that the boy’s father had jumped inside to try to stop the vehicle which began rolling on its own while the child and his grandmother were inside. No charges have been filed. Police-provided preliminary accounts point to a tragic accident.

Prince George’s County Police spokeswoman, Cpl. Maria McKinney said the father had just removed his 2 year old daughter out of an automobile that was parked in an Oxon Hill apartment complex parking lot, when he noticed the vehicle was rolling on its own. After seeing the movement, the father attempted to jump into the vehicle in order to regain control but, before that could occur, the 3 year old boy fell from the vehicle and was struck.

The boy was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
