LAKEWOOD, N.J. (AP) - Police say a New Jersey woman backed her car into her 2-year-old nephew, killing him.

Lt. Gregory Staffordsmith told the Asbury Park Press (https://on.app.com/2htrU4z) that the 33-year-old Lakewood woman was preparing to leave her home Thursday and was moving her car to a closer parking spot to load some packages and the toddler.

Police say the boy followed her without her knowing and was behind the car. They say she couldn’t see him when she backed into him.

Police say the boy suffered significant head injuries. A neighbor took them to a hospital in Brick, where he later died.

No charges have been filed.

The names of the boy and his aunt weren’t immediately released.
