A toddler has been seriously injured and Las Cruces Police are investigating the circumstances that led to a vehicle running over the young boy.

Just before 1 p.m. Friday, Dec. 21, Las Cruces Police were called to the 2900 block of Fountain Avenue where the 2-year-old boy was injured. The boy was initially cared for by Las Cruces firefighters and emergency medical responders and then airlifted to University Medical Center of El Paso.

The boy's injuries are possibly life-threatening.

Preliminary information relayed to police appears to indicate that an adult relative was driving a sport utility vehicle forward, along the driveway, and was unaware that the small child was near vehicle.

Police are investigating the incident.
