A toddler playing in front of his home in Point Loma Heights was struck by a vehicle late Saturday morning, according to San Diego police.

The accident happened at about 11:12 a.m. when the three-year-old walked into the street in front of a home in the 2100 block of Catalina Blvd, according to Officer Frank Cali.

Cali said the toddler walked straight into the path of a Toyota sedan traveling northbound.     

The boy was taken to an area hospital with minor injuries, however a follow up at the hospital later revealed that the boy had sustained a serious head injury in result of the accident, Cali said. 

Alcohol was not a factor in the accident, according to a media release.
