An 18-month-old boy has died after what police are calling an apparent accident.
Media outlets report the Springfield Police Department responded Sunday afternoon to a vehicle versus pedestrian call. The officers who arrived at the scene found a toddler, identified as Christopher Alexander Garian, who had been struck by a vehicle that was backing out of a driveway.
Washington County EMS rushed the boy to Springview Hospital. He was pronounced dead at the hospital by the Marion County Coroner.
Police say the toddler was in Springfield with his parents, D'Anna Seabridge and Christopher Garian, visiting family for Easter.
The incident remains under investigation.
