BURAS, La. -- A 4-year-old boy has died after his father accidentally struck him with his vehicle as he pulled out of his driveway, according to Louisiana State Police.

It happened at about noon Wednesday in the 100 block of Circle Street in Buras.

Hai Hoang Thanh Huynh, 32, was backing his truck out of his driveway when he hit his son, 4-year-old Vincent Huynh.

Huynh, after realizing what he'd done, put his son in his truck and began driving to the hospital. A Plaquemines Parish deputy eventually pulled Huynh over for speeding. Those deputies inspected the boy and pronounced him dead on the scene.

Drive impairment isn't suspected in this case.

The crash remains under investigation. No charges have been filed.
