Ohio - Authorities say a woman fatally struck her 5-year-old son when he ran in front of her vehicle as she was dropping him off for school.

The boy was hit on Tuesday morning in Ohio outside Saint Francis de Sales School in Coventry Township, a few miles south of downtown Akron.

A spokesperson for the Summit County Sheriff's Office says the boy died at the scene. Authorities didn't immediately release the child's name.

The sheriff's office says the initial investigation showed no indication that drugs, alcohol or excessive speed were factors in the collision. It remains under investigation.

WEWS-TV reports that investigators say the mother isn't expected to face charges.
