Deputies say the boy had gone outside with his grandmother. When she turned her back, the boy crawled under the truck, apparently looking for a toy.

The boy's uncle was unaware that the boy was there and ran over him while attempting to move his truck into the garage.

The child was flown to the Primary Children's Medical Center in extremely critical condition.
