The Cleveland Police Department says a tragic accident claimed the life of a toddler Thursday morning.

CPD spokesperson Sergeant Evie West says just before noon, officers arrived on Highland Drive SW.

Once there, officers found a 15-month-old boy suffering from severe head trauma.

Responders started CPR until EMS arrived and took him to Tennova, but he passed away at the hospital.

Sgt. West says officers spoke with the boys' parents, and found that the father had accidentally ran over his son in the driveway.

Police say the boy's parents are working with officers, and that it appears to have been a tragic accident.

"Please remember this family, and the public safety officials who responded to the scene, in your thoughts and prayers," says Sergeant West.

This is an ongoing investigation.

This is a developing story and will be updated as we learn more.
