Naples Toddler Dies After Being Hit By a Vehicle in His Driveway
Police are investigating after a 2-year-old was fatally hit by a vehicle in his own driveway.
When Did This Happen?
Maine Department of Public Safety spokesperson Shannon Moss says the Cumberland County Regional Communications Center received a 911 call Saturday afternoon from the area of Lambs Mills Road. Shortly after the call, the Naples Fire Department reported that there was an unresponsive 2-year-old child at their station.
What are the Circumstances of the Incident?
Members of the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office and the Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit responded and learned that the child had been struck by a vehicle in the driveway of a residence on Lambs Mills Road. The Major Crimes Unit was called in because of the age of the child. An investigation into the circumstances of the incident revealed that the boy's father was moving a pickup truck and camper trailer and was unable to see the child, who was struck. The parents immediately grabbed the toddler and transported him to the Naples Fire Department.
The names of all involved are being withheld by police, pending notification of next of kin.
