An infant boy died Friday afternoon shortly after being struck by a car exiting the parking lot of an Arnona nursery school in Jerusalem, in what police are deeming a tragic accident. The driver of the vehicle, a father of another child from the day care, hit Roichai Yona while in reverse, and then immediately stopped and exited the car. Yona was just under two-years-old.

MDA medics promptly arrived at the scene to provide emergency medical treatment for the critically injured boy, who was rushed by ambulance to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital where he subsequently died, a hospital spokesperson said Sunday.

Police said the driver of the vehicle was questioned extensively by officers for several hours before being released. No foul play is suspected.  A funeral for Yona was held Saturday.
