A family member was trying to jump start his car when he accidentally ran over the child, the Hanford Police Department said.

The police said a two-year-old child was killed after being hit by a car that a family member was trying to jump start on South Del Rio Court -- near Davis Street and Kimball Street. The family member told police he thought the child was in the house at the time.

When police and medical personnel arrived at the scene, they said the child had a faint pulse -- but was later pronounced dead at the hospital. They said the cause of death was massive head trauma.

Authorities said they are still investigating the incident as a traffic accident, but at this time, no charges have been filed.
