A 2-year old boy died in Joliet when his 15-year-old brother accidentally ran over him while trying to pull out of his driveway in the family’s SUV.
The accident happened Saturday afternoon in a West Joliet subdivision.
2-year-old Alex Marivilla was run over by older brother in the family’s driveway. The Chicago Tribune reports the teen had his learners permit and was asked to move a GMC Yukon SUV out of the driveway.
Police tell the Tribune the teen pulled forward, heard a noise, stopped and found his little brother.
Police say this looks like a tragic accident in the young child may have been trying to get into the passenger side of the SUV. Police also tell the Tribune and the teen may not have seen him.
