A 3-year-old boy was killed in the parking lot of a Florida Waffle House after his father accidentally ran over him with the family’s SUV, police said.

Both parents of Jeremiah Rios mistakenly believed the other parent placed him in the vehicle when they pulled away from the restaurant in Brandon on Tuesday night, according to a Hillsborough County Police report.

The article goes on to state the following:

“It’s too late for this family and had the most tragic outcome but if in the future, if we could just ask parents, slow down, make sure you’ve got everybody,” Danny Alvarez, the department’s public information officer, said in an interview with WTSP. “We know we get caught up in our day but slow down and we can prevent a tragedy.”

Jeremiah’s father, Guillermo Junior Montoya Rios, hit the child with his right front tire, causing severe head injuries, the police report said. The boy later was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
