    A father and his 3-year-old son were injured Wednesday morning when a vehicle backed over them near Petaluma, according to the California Highway Patrol.

    CHP officers responded at about 10:40 a.m. to Emerald Drive just west of Petaluma on a report of a collision involving a vehicle and pedestrian.

    An investigation determined that the father was holding his young son when the vehicle backed over them, according to the CHP.

    Both the father and son were taken to Petaluma Valley Hospital and the boy was then flown to UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland with moderate to major injuries, CHP officials said.

    CHP Officer Jonathan Sloat said more information about the collision was not immediately available.
