SHARE Child likely to recover after being run over

OGDEN — Police say a child who was run over in the driveway of the family's home Wednesday is expected to recover.

At about 3:20 p.m., a 1-year-old was playing outside, near 30th Street and Porter Avenue, when a 19-year-old relative got in his car and backed over the child, said Ogden Police Lt. David Tarran. Other relatives took the child to the hospital, but the child was later flown to Primary Children's Medical Center as a precaution.

Tarrandid not know the child's gender but said the injuries were not life-threatening.

No charges will be filed because the incident happened on private property, Tarran said. He said it also "appears to be purely accidental."
