MARYSVILLE, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio prosecutor says he’s investigating how a 4-year-old boy died following an accident in which authorities say he was accidentally run over by a van driven by his father.
Union County Prosecutor David Phillips says he has unanswered questions about trauma suffered by Angel Hernandez.
Phillips said Thursday the charge of leaving an accident without talking to authorities that the boy’s father currently faces is preliminary and additional charges could be filed.
Defense attorney Scott Culbert says he believes the leaving the scene charge will be dropped against Natividad de Jesus Hernandez and other charges filed instead.
Police say the boy died Dec. 26 after he was run over after falling out of the van.
The boy’s father was allowed to leave jail Thursday to attend his son’s funeral.
