A two year-old has died after being knocked down on the driveway of his house.
The accident happened at approximately 7pm yesterday evening on the drive of the family house in Oranmore, County Galway, Ireland. No one else was injured in the incident and it is understood that a parent of the boy was driving the car at the time.
The little boy was rushed to hospital, but could not be saved and was pronounced dead shortly after his arrival. His name has not yet been released by the police.
The police are investigating what they have described as a “tragic accident” and have said that a forensic collision investigation team will be examining the scene of the incident. However, it is being treated as an accidental collision and Gardai are not looking for anyone else in connection with it.
