We are sending all of our love and thoughts to the family of the toddler at this time.
UPDATE 11.30am: An 18 month old boy has been taken to hospital. The toddler was walking with his Grandmother in Auburn when the incident occurred, not with his mother as originally thought. Reports are coming in from witnesses saying that the 18 month old boy was on his way to daycare and that he broke away from his grandmothers side and ran towards the road. Once he realised he was away from his caregiver and a car was heading towards him, he ran back towards his grandmother.
