An Alabama toddler died when he was accidentally run over by a truck driven by his mom’s boyfriend, authorities said.
Ivan Alexander Aguilar Jr., a 19-month-old boy from Horton, was found dead beneath a truck after he wandered out of his Nixon Chapel Road home late Saturday without being noticed, AL.com reported.
Marshall County Assistant Chief Deputy Steve Guthrie said the boyfriend of Ivan’s mother moved the truck while unaware that the boy was beneath the vehicle. His mother, Lexie Ramirez, and her boyfriend later found him dead under the truck, Guthrie said.
“There was no foul play,” Guthrie told the outlet. “It was just an unfortunate catastrophe.”
No charges will be filed in the boy’s death. A coroner pronounced Ivan dead at the scene, WAAY reported.
Ramirez told WAFF the death of her only child who was set to turn two in February was a “tragic accident.” His funeral is set for 11 a.m. Wednesday.
