San Jose Man Accidentally Runs Over, Kills 2-Year-Old Stepson

A San Jose family is mourning the death of a toddler who died after his stepfather accidentally ran over him with a pickup truck.

Police say 2-year-old Alexander Moran Cabrera was killed Friday
morning when Jose Luis Corona backed over the boy with his 2002
Chevy Silverado.

When Corona realized he had hit something, he got out of the truck, picked up the toddler and called 911.

Last year, more than 100 children were killed in "back-over" deaths in the U.S., according to statistics compiled by the group Kids And Cars.

Coincidentally, President Bush signed legislation this week mandating government standards that require car manufacturers to provide better rearview visibility.
