PLANT CITY, Fla. (AP) - A 4-year-old boy run over by a pickup truck at a Tampa Bay-area strawberry field has died.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office says Hayden Hitchcock was running alongside a truck driven by his uncle Sunday afternoon when he slipped and fell. Authorities say the slowly moving truck’s rear tires ran over the boy.

Hayden was the great-grandson of Parkesdale Farms founder Roy Parke. The boy was run over at a Parkesdale strawberry field in Dover.

Authorities say the uncle who was driving the truck rushed Hayden to a Plant City hospital

Relatives told The Tampa Tribune on Monday (https://bit.ly/17fk09S ) that the boy later was transferred to a Tampa hospital, where he died.
