CASA GRANDE, Ariz. -- Casa Grande police said a 1-year-old boy is dead, apparently after being struck with his father's truck outside the family home.

Police said the boy was found unresponsive after his mother called 911 Tuesday evening. The boy was pronounced dead at Casa Grande Regional Medical Center.

The initial investigation indicated the boy was struck by the truck when the father briefly left.

Police said they're trying to determine why the child was outside and whether he was supervised.
