A 13-month-old boy was killed when his father accidentally struck him with his car Tuesday night in Kahuku.

Police said the man, 28, was backing his 1994 Acura Legend out of his driveway shortly after 7 p.m. when he felt a bump. The man got out and found his son lying behind the car with head injuries.

The man took his son to Kapi'olani Medical Center at Pali Momi and the infant was then taken by helicopter to the Queen's Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 7:36 p.m. Police have classified the incident as a non-traffic fatality.
