A mother in Louisiana accidentally ran over her one-year-old son in what police are calling a tragic accident.
Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre says a 911 call came in Wednesday around 9:40pm, after a concerned citizen reported hearing screaming and crying outside.
Investigators learned little Cai’s mother, Tralyn Crosby, 35, was backing her vehicle up when she struck her son.
The toddler was taken to Ochsner St. Anne Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The comminuty has shown an outpouring of support fr the family in the wake of the horrific mistake.
Police believe Cai followed his mother out of the home without her knowledge, according to HoumaToday.
Webre said no charges have been filed against the mother, as they don’t suspect impairment or foul play.
‘This is a horrible tragedy for this family and the community,’ Webre said in a press release. ‘My heart goes out to the family, and I pray they can find peace in such a difficult time.’
Her two other sons and her husband were inside the home at the time of the accident.
