Toddler run over and killed by family member

A TODDLER has been run over and killed by a family member in a tragic accident north of Adelaide.

The two-year-old boy was struck by the family car in the backyard of a home at Angle Vale on Saturday morning.

Paramedics were called to the Whitelaws Court home just after 11.30am and found the child unresponsive.


Sadly, despite their best efforts to resuscitate the two-year-old, he could not be revived.

The small boy died at the scene before he could be transported to hospital, SA Police said.

Police have confirmed the child lived at the Angle Vale home and say his family is understandably “inconsolable”.

Major Crash Investigators have spent the day at the scene, investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident.
