---- — FORT WAYNE (AP) — Authorities in Fort Wayne have ruled as accidental the death of a toddler who was struck while family members were rearranging vehicles in their driveway.

The Allen County coroner's office says 1-year-old Collier Holbrook died of blunt-force trauma when he was hit Saturday evening.

The Journal Gazette and WANE-TV report Collier was outside the house southwest of the city's downtown when he became pinned underneath an SUV. He was taken to a hospital but died a short time later.
