Four-year-old Angel Gustbabo Hernandez reportedly fell out of the van on Brock Road at approximately 11 a.m., and was struck by the vehicle. The child was pronounced dead at Dublin Methodist Hospital.
The driver was the boy's father, 30-year-old Natividad de Jesus Hernandez, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol of Marysville. Troopers said the man had just pulled away from a construction site when the boy fell from the vehicle.

Investigators located the van and the alleged driver approximately three hours after the boy was killed.
Hernandez was charged with leaving the scene of an accident. Authorities said he could face additional charges.
