WELLFORD, S.C - SOUTH CAROLINA (AP) - A 2-year-old California boy has died after he was backed over by a car in a driveway in South Carolina.

Multiple media outlets reported Arkadiy Vihodet of Sacramento, Calif., was killed Saturday afternoon when 40-year-old Valentina Cholak was backing out of her home in Wellford. Robin Forrest of the Spartanburg County coroner's office says the boy died at the scene.
