Man Accused Of Running Over Toddler Had Suspended License
WALLKILL, N.Y. (AP) — Police say a driver with a suspended license backed over an upstate New York toddler who had been retrieving a ball, killing the child.
Authorities say 1-year-old Joshua Gutierrez was run over at his parents' car-repair shop in the Orange County town of Wallkill Monday afternoon.
The boy, whose family is from the village of Bloomingburg in neighboring Sullivan County, was taken to a hospital by his mother and was pronounced dead.
Police arrested a 31-year-old man and charged him with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.
The reason for the man's suspension wasn't immediately available. He works at the car-repair shop.
