A 32-year-old father unintentionally ran over his 23-month-old son with his truck Sunday, killing the boy, according to police.

Costa Mesa police said Armando Medina went to move his 2007 Chevrolet Silverado from his driveway so that another car could pull out of it, and did not know that his youngest son, identified as Alexis Medina, was standing in front of it.

When Medina pulled forward, he told police he felt his vehicle "go over a bump," which he at first thought was just a speed bump on the street in front of his home in the 600 block of West Wilson Street.
