2 Year Old Fatally Run Over by Semi in Wapato

A toddler is fatally run over by a semi truck in Wapato last night.

It happened around 6pm on the 2500 block of Progressive Road.

The Yakima County Sheriff's office says the driver of the semi was family member.

They say the 2 year old boy was left in the yard and apparently crawled under the trailer of the parked semi.  The driver pulled forward a few feet and realized he struck something.  Authorities say the driver last saw the child in the yard. 

The boy was taken to the hospital, but did not survive.

The investigation continues.
