A Fremont toddler was killed Saturday when his father accidentally drove over him with a vehicle, according to a news release from the police department.

Juliano Stockman-Patino, 22 months, died from his injuries after the 9:04 p.m. incident.

His father, Juan Patino, 23, was leaving a residence in the 600 block of S. Front St. when the child wandered into the path of the 2004 Lincoln Navigator as it was pulling away.

Fremont police and the Ohio State Highway Patrol are investigating the incident.

The last part of the investigation to be completed is a diagram of the scene, police Chief Tim Wiersma said.

"It's just a tragedy," he said.

The child's body was sent to the Lucas County Coroner's Office for an autopsy.

What a tragic event, my thoughts are with the parents the father will have to live with this tragedy forever so sad. THANK GOODNESS they are sending the autopsy out instead of making a phone call. I hope all heal as much as possible as quickly as possible

More bleeding heart garbage. No different than if he left the toddler in a locked car on a 90 degree day for hours. There are accidents and there is criminal negligence. At the very least it should be investigated objectively as a crime and if one is believe to have occurred, appropriate charges should be filed.

A good start would be to see if the standards for negligent homicide are met

Very, very sad! Who was supposed to be watching the 22 month old infant?

TboneWalkerJr

Who? A responsible adult. Since the child died it leaves two options. Either there was no responsible adult around or the adult there was not responsible enough to care for a 2 yr old

These kids depend on us to keep them safe, as a parent it is an unwritten rule. Why were the parents so out of touch with reality to allow this to happen? I'm with T-Bone on this!

Maybe whoever was supposed to be watching the child wasn't or maybe the child was being a typical toddler and ran quicker than someone could grab him. As the mother of a toddler, I know that if I let go of that hand for a second he will run after the first thing that catches his attention.

Agreed!

Once upon a time, a long, long time ago there used to be a thing called a Tragic Accident. Something terrible happened and people mourned and grieved and helped each other get through it. Now there is a thing called The Blame Game. If something bad happens it's someone's fault but never yours. In this game bad things only happen to other people- never you. So in this game you can take very little information and turn it around to make it someone's fault. There is no compassion involved in this game so many people like to partcipate in it. Once in awhile something bad does happen to a person who likes to play this Blame Game and then all the rules suddenly change.
