A 2-year-old Kennewick boy was killed Tuesday evening when his mom apparently hit him with a van in the parking lot of their Kennewick apartment complex.
Kennewick police said Mendeck Farah, 36, might have accidentally hit the accelerator instead of the brake at 8 p.m. on the 500 block of Olympia Street.
The boy was dragged under the vehicle for several feet.
His father pulled him out from under the van and took him to Trios Health, where he was pronounced dead.
Never miss a local story.
Police said it appears an accidental tragedy, but it remains under investigation.
Witnesses are asked to call the Kennewick Police Department.
