A small child is reportedly in very critical condition after being hit and dragged by a car in northeast Houston Sunday.

According to police, a woman was in a car backing up when the approximately 2-year-old child broke away from a family member and into the path of the car.

The driver apparently struck the child, then dragged him for several feet before coming to a stop.

The child is listed in very critical condition. The driver is being treated on the scene after she understandably became very upset.

Police are treating this as a bad accident. No charges are expected.
