A woman accidentally hit and killed her 3-year-old son while practicing driving on Saturday. St. Paul police say Wah Has Paw, 39, was driving in the Harding High School parking lot when she hit the car's accelerator instead of the brake.
Family members, including her son were standing in the parking lot. The car struck and pinned her son, Hsa Kpaw Moo Ku, against a large clothing donation box.
A passerby stopped to help after hearing the crash and transported Kpaw Moo Ku and a family member to Regions Hospital, where the boy died.
Police say Paw and other witnesses are cooperating with investigators.
They say there are no initial signs of alcohol or impairment playing a role in the crash.
