A 3-year-old was killed after being hit by a sport utility vehicle Wednesday morning near Tree Court in Lodi.

Lodi Police and Fire departments were called to the scene at 11:27 a.m. in response to a child being struck by a vehicle.

However, the circumstances leading up to the incident are unclear at this time, according to Officer Jim Pendergast.

The boy was taken to the hospital with severe head trauma where he later died from his injuries, police said. The driver was the child’s father.

Police say the collision appears to be an accident, and is under investigation by Lodi’s Major Accident and Investigation Team.

    I have read about this kind of thing from time to time in my 55 years. I still don't understand how you can move a vehicle when you know your three year old is outside.

    And a three year old should NOT be outside unless the parent allows this and is supervising that child. If that were the case this would never happen...

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
