A toddler died Tuesday in Florida after his father accidentally ran him over with the family's SUV in a restaurant parking lot.
The Tampa Bay Times reports it happened just before 10 p.m. as the family was leaving a Waffle House in Brandon.
The boy's mother and father both mistakenly believed that the other had placed the boy inside their Chevy Tahoe.
The boy's 29-year-old father, Guillermo Junior Montoya Rios, had begun to drive away when the SUV's tire struck the 3-year-old, causing severe head injuries.
Jeremiah Rios was pronounced dead at Brandon Regional Hospital.
Authorities said neither alcohol nor drugs were a factor in the tragic accident.
Alvarez said the parents had seven children leaving the restaurant with them when the incident occurred.
