Baby dies after being run over by 4WD being driven by his mum

A BABY boy has died after his pram was run over by a 4WD being driven by his mother north of the Gold Coast.

The horrific accident happened in a driveway on St Paul’s Drive at Woodridge in Logan at around 2pm.

Police say the seven-month-old boy was strapped in the pram when it was struck by the reversing 4WD.


Both the pram and baby were pinned under the vehicle which was being driven by the child’s mother.

It’s understood the family had been attending a funeral at a church on the same street and were preparing to leave when the unimaginable tragedy occurred.

The infant was rushed to Brisbane’s Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in a critical condition.

Sadly, the seven-month-old boy succumbed to his injuries and died shortly after arriving at the hospital.

The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident.
