SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 3-year-old boy suffered major head trauma Saturday night when he was run over by a pickup truck in a San Diego driveway, authorities said.
 
The incident was reported just before 7 p.m. in the 5400 block of Imperial Avenue, said San Diego police Officer Robert Heims.
 
The boy was playing in the driveway with other children, Heims said. "A 24-year-old male got into his Dodge pickup truck and started to drive away. He did not see anyone but ran over the 3-year-old."
 
Paramedics took the boy to a hospital, the officer said. His condition was not known. Detectives were investigating.
