CALDWELL -- An 18-month-old boy died after his father accidentally ran him over at a home south of Caldwell Wednesday night.

According to the Canyon County Sheriff's Office, the incident happened at abut 7:45 p.m. in the 15000 block of Barrett View Circle.

The boy's father, 29-year-old Todd Squires, was backing up his pickup to leave when the child suddenly ran behind his truck, deputies say. According to investigators, the toddler's mother saw him dart behind the vehicle and tried to warn Squires, but he did not hear her yelling.
