A two-year-old has died after he was run over by a van.
Police say the two-year-old had climbed into the back hatch entrance of a van that was backing up to a residence to unload furniture.
The driver didn't notice the child had climbed into the van and continued to back up, police say. The toddler fell out of the van and was run over by the 1998 Plymouth Voyager van.
The toddler sustained critical injuries to the head and neck and was flown to Kosair Children's in Louisville in critical condition, officials say. He was pronounced dead Wednesday evening.
Police say alcohol is not suspected to be a contributing factor.
