Muskegon father runs over 3-year-old son twice while trick or treating
GRAND HAVEN TOWNSHIP, Mich. —
A 3-year-old was run over by his father while trick or treating.
Ottawa County deputies said a 36-year-old Muskegon man was driving 3 mph north on Hofma Drive in a Dodge Caravan with the rear side doors open. His 3-year-old and 7-year-old sons were in the back with their legs hanging from the doors.
Deputies are unsure if the 3-year-old jumped or fell at about 7:30 p.m. Witnesses started to yell and the father stopped the van. He put the car in reverse and ran over the child. He put the car in drive and ran over the child a second time.
The child was taken to Hackley Hospital with injuries to his legs. Police said the child is expected to live.
Deputies are investigating the accident.
