VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - A 4-year-old boy has been hospitalized after authorities say his mother accidentally ran over him in the parking lot of a hospital in Vicksburg.

Multiple media outlets report the incident happened Tuesday evening at Merit Health River Region.

Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace says the woman had loaded two of her children into the SUV and thought the 4-year-old was in the vehicle also.

Investigators say the child had apparently gotten his shirt stuck in the door and when his mother went back out, he was struck.

The child was taken inside the hospital and later flown to a children’s hospital in Jackson, where he was listed in fair condition Wednesday.
