State police say a preliminary investigation suggests the boy's dad was plowing his driveway in Boonville with an old model bulldozer. They say the man didn't realize his son was behind him when he started backing up the vehicle.

The boy was treated at the scene before he was taken to a nearby hospital with injuries to his lower body and possible internal injuries. He was later taken to a hospital in Syracuse.
