Police identified the 18-month-old toddler who was killed after being run over by a family member Tuesday night.

Police say, Emilio S. Ponce was struck at 230 Three Crosses Ave, around 8pm by a 1984 Chevrolet pickup driven by his mother, 24-year-old Sylvia Carriana Alvarado.

Preliminary information obtained by investigators appears to indicate that Alvarado did not see her son as he walked toward the roadway at 230 Three Crosses Ave.

The toddler may have been trying to follow his mother and stepped into the path of the moving pickup.

The toddler was rushed to MountainView Regional Medical Center but was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.

The investigation continues.
