2-year-old run over by family member's vehicle

A 2-year-old boy was run over by a family member as the driver backed a vehicle out of the driveway Sunday evening.

Sandy City Police Capt. Jon Arnold said the boy was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

At around 6:45 p.m. the boy was playing on the front lawn of his home near 9300 South and Greenwood Drive as the driver was maneuvering past a second vehicle in the driveway. The driver did not see the 2-year-old move behind the car, Arnold said.

Police are calling the incident a "tragic accident," and Arnold said charges would not be filed.
