Corpus Christi police said a 3-year-old boy died after being struck while trying to run from the family's vehicle to the entrance of a Chuck E. Cheese theme restaurant.

Sgt. Tony Acevedo said the accident happened Monday night when the child darted out of the vehicle and was hit by a pickup in the restaurant parking lot.

Acevedo said the victim, whose name was not immediately released, suffered head trauma and was transported to a Corpus Christi hospital, where he died.

Acevedo said the pickup driver never had a chance to stop and is not expected to be cited in the accident outside the kid-friendly restaurant.
