The incident took place in the town of Greene, as a state police spokesman said Kevin did not see his child when he was backing the vehicle up around 6:45 a.m.

The boy was playing soccer when the accident occurred.

Neither Kevin nor anyone in his family has commented on the tragedy publicly, but the father reacted with a message on his Facebook page that reads:

"Please forgive me and my family. I love him with all my heart. It is now broken."
