A 2-year-old boy died Wednesday after being struck by a vehicle in the parking lot of an elementary school in Oxnard.

Authorities responded to Ansgar Larsen Elementary School at 550 Thomas Ave. at 7: 58 a.m. The toddler was rushed to the Ventura County Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

According to the preliminary investigation, a 2004 Mitsubishi Montero was traveling through the parking lot when it struck the toddler, who had wandered away from his mother.

The driver will not be charged, as officers believe the incident was simply a tragic accident. Police say speed, alcohol and drugs were not a factor.
