KEARNS — A 1-year-old boy was accidentially runover in his driveway and killed Saturday.

The incident happened just before 1 p.m. at 5420 Planada Way (4885 South). A 46-year-old family member was backing out a Chevy Tahoe when the child, who was in the yard playing with other children, somehow ended up behind the vehicle and was run over.

The boy was taken to Intermountain Medical Center but later passed away.

Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal said the event was being treated as an accident.
