Police say a 3-year-old boy is in critical condition this morning after being run over by a car as the driver backed out of his residence Sunday afternoon.

According to police reports, a neighbor yelled at the driver to stop his car because the child was stuck underneath the vehicle.

Police had very few details to share, but Officer Albie Esparza told us that "somehow, the toddler child got underneath the car."

The toddler was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with a life-threatening head injury.

We'll tell you more when we know more.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
