A tragic accident happened Wednesday outside an elementary school when a 2-year-old toddler was struck by a car and killed, according to authorities.
The boy was with his mother, who was dropping off his sibling—a kindergarten student—at Ansgar Larsen elementary School, the school’s superintendent Dr. Jerry Dannenberg said. The School is located in Oxnard.
According to officials, the mother was walking with the boy when she stopped to talk to someone in the parking lot. A substitute teacher driving into the parking lot struck the child, according to Dannenberg.
The incident “looks like it was a complete unintended accident” and there are “no criminal elements” at play, said a spokesperson with the Oxnard Police Department.
The investigation is still ongoing. Officials have not released the name of the toddler.
