April 27, 2010 |  8:29 pm

A 1-year-old Pomona boy was killed Tuesday after he was run over by his 16-year-old mother, who was operating her truck without a driver's license, police said.

The mother was backing the 2000 Dodge Ram truck out of a driveway onto the street, where the child was struck. The mother apparently did not see her son, the Pomona Police Department said.

The child was pronounced dead at Pomona Valley Medical Center, police said. The incident occurred shortly before 8 a.m. on Muir Street.

An investigation was ongoing, but police said alcohol or drugs do not appear to have been involved.
