    Police in Providence, Rhode Island, confirmed on Wednesday that a 15-month-old boy who was hit by a neighbor's car has died.

    Justin Diaz Cabral was struck last month in his driveway and suffered a serious head injury. He later died at Hasbro Children's Hospital.

    Police said Cabral's father gave the all clear to a neighbor, 28, before she backed out of the driveway on Gillen Street and struck his son.

    Cabral's father drove him to the hospital.

    The neighbor who hit the boy apparently did not know what had happened and continued to work. Police said the boy's father called her to tell her what happened and she went to the hospital to meet with investigators.

    The driver has not been charged.
