Police Thursday were investigating the circumstances that led to a 2-year-old boy being killed by a pickup truck backing out of a Yorba Linda home’s driveway.
It happened about 4:50 p.m. Wednesday in the 4000 block of Casa Oro Drive, according to Orange County Sheriff’s Department Public Information Manager Carrie Braun.
The boy was struck near his home, Braun said.
The child was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The driver of the pickup remained at the scene.
“Our Major Accident Reconstruction Team is conducting their investigation and talking with the subject,” sheriff’s Lt. Cory Martino told NBC4. “We do not know if impairment was a factor in this incident.”
