A Queensland woman who accidentally ran over her infant son at a funeral south of Brisbane is unlikely to be charged, police say.

The seven-month-old was in a pram hit by the woman's car as she was reversing on St Pauls Drive, Woodridge, just before 2pm on Friday afternoon.

He was rushed to Brisbane's Lady Cilento Children's Hospital in a serious condition but died a short time later.

"The investigations are ongoing but it's unlikely they're going to charge a mother over something like this," a police spokeswoman said on Saturday.

The boy's mother was the sole occupant of the vehicle and was not hurt, police said.

Senior Sergeant Tony Jackson on Friday said the woman was distraught.

"It's a terrible tragedy and a timely reminder for parents who have children to ensure they know exactly where they are."

The woman was believed to have been attending a funeral at nearby St Paul's Parish.
