SCHAEFFERSTOWN, Pa. (WHTM) -

A 2-year-old Lebanon County boy died Wednesday evening after an accident in the driveway of his Schaefferstown home.

State police said the boy's father was backing a Kenworth fuel tanker into a private driveway near North Market and Valley View Road and accidentally struck the child sometime after 5:30 p.m.

The boy was pronounced dead at the scene.

Marlin Martin who lives nearby, said the boy was a great neighbor and had such an impact on his weekly routine.

"When I am working in the fields, he would walk along the yard and watch me," Martin said, "and he was such an inquisitive and cute little boy."

Martin said the boy was going to celebrate his third birthday on Thursday.

Police said their investigation is ongoing.
