WINDER, Ga. -- The Barrow County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of a 14-month-old boy who was accidentally run over by his mother, authorities said.

The child, whose name was not released, was killed about noon Wednesday in the driveway of a home on Bowman Terrace in Winder, a sheriff’s spokesman said.

The child’s mother had dropped him off at his grandmother’s house and as the mother prepared to leave “the child unknowingly got behind the vehicle and was struck and killed,” according to the report.

“The evidence indicates this tragic incident was an accident,” the spokesman said.

I can't imagine being a parent who accidentally killed they're child. A lifetime of regrets and handwringing. Sentiments to the parents and poor child.
