A 2-year-old Fremont boy died from his injuries after being run over by a pickup truck Wednesday afternoon.
Fremont Police Interim Chief Jeff Elliott said 2-year-old Jorge Avalos Jr. was killed in the accident, which occurred shortly after 3:30 p.m. at a trailer court at 1015 N. Pierce St. The driver of the pickup was the boy’s father, 36-year-old Jorge Avalos Sr. of Fremont.
Elliott said Jorge Avalos Sr. was pulling his 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 forward to leave the residence and was not able to see his son, who was in the street. The young boy was run over and sustained injuries to his head.
Elliott said the boy was transported to Fremont Area Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead shortly after 4 p.m.
The accident remains under investigation, but Elliott said criminal charges are not anticipated.
