By Yessenia Anderson

CENTRAL POINT,Ore. — A family at the bedside of their 3-year-old.
Police said the boy’s mother backed over him. Central Point officers said the child was on his tricycle when it happened.

The parents were apparently trying to reposition vehicles and the mother didn’t see him when she put the car in reverse. The little boy was consious and responding when an ambulence took him to the hospital. Officers said they do not know the extent of his injuries.

No immediate charges were filed and officers don’t believe alcohol was involved. Less than two weeks ago, a 3-year-old was killed in Ashland when he was backed over accidentally.
