LOXAHATCHEE, Fla. (AP) — A South Florida toddler died after being run over by his father's truck.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office reports that 3-year-old Michael Pollard had been with his mother in the backyard of the family's Loxahatchee home Sunday morning when he ran out of the gate to find his father. Michael's father had been using his truck to do off-road work and didn't see the boy run up.
Authorities say the father started driving the truck forward. As the boy ran along the passenger side, one of the back tires hit the boy.
The Palm Beach Post (http://goo.gl/0yRcva ) reports that the boy was airlifted to a West Palm Beach hospital, where he died.
