A 1-year-old boy has died after a sport utility vehicle ran over him in the driveway of his family's north Texas home. Wichita Falls police say Giovanni Fidel Perez died while receiving treatment at United Medical Center late Tuesday afternoon.

According to a police statement, the family says the child had left the house without the knowledge of anyone inside when a visitor left the house, got into his SUV and began to pull toward the street. In doing so, the right front tire struck the boy.

An autopsy has been ordered. No charges have been filed, but the investigation continues.
