Police say a 5-year-old boy has died after he was run over by his father in an apparent accident in southwest Detroit.
Officer Shanelle Williams, a spokeswoman for the Detroit Police Department, tells The Detroit News that the 27-year-old father backed over his child Tuesday.
WXYZ-TV reports the father thought the child was in the backseat of the vehicle. Williams says the child was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The father was questioned by police. The death is under investigation.
