A tragic accident claimed the life of a one-and-a-half-year-old boy in Wisconsin on Monday morning.

The boy, named Abraham Flynn, was hit by a van in the driveway of a neighbor's home in Farmington, near the Minnesota border, just after 10 a.m.

The car was being moved at the time so that the driveway could be snow plowed, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Department.
