An 18-month-old toddler died Tuesday after being run over by a vehicle in Newton. The accident was reported just after 6:30 p.m. near 396 W. 300 S.
A family member was reportedly backing up a truck when he ran over the child. The family began performing CPR while calling 911.
Cache County Sheriff’s Lt. Mikelshan Bartschi said the toddler was transported to the Cache Valley Hospital and later succumbed to the injuries sustained. Initial evidence is leading investigators to believe it was a tragic accident.
The identity of the toddler is not being released, pending notification of additional family members.
Bartschi said, “our thoughts and prayers are with all those involved in this incident.”
