Police say charges are not likely to be filed against a Fremont father who didn't know his 2-year-old son was in front of his pickup when he ran the boy over Wednesday afternoon.

Jorge Avalos Jr. suffered head and internal injuries. He was taken to Fremont Area Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

The Avalos family was working outside their home when the boy either sat down or was standing in front of the truck around 3:30 p.m. Thirty-seven-year-old Jorge Avalos Sr. got into the vehicle and drove forward.
