18-Month-Old Girl Dies After Being Accidentally Run Over By Mother In Driveway

According to the inquiry, the mother and the victim (her daughter) had just returned after a grocery run.

After a mother unintentionally ran over her 18-month-old on Monday, the child succumbed to her injuries. According to a news release from the authorities, New York State Police responded to a complaint about a child who had been hit by a car in the driveway of their home in Schuyler.

According to the inquiry, the mother and the victim (her daughter) had just returned from a grocery store. While her daughter was playing on an outside play set, the mother was bringing groceries inside. The mother carried the items inside and then returned to her vehicle, reports PEOPLE. The toddler rushed in front of the SUV as the mother started to bring her vehicle forward to park.

 



 

 

The news release reads, "As the mother pulled forward, she drove over her daughter and upon hearing and feeling the impact jumped out and immediately ran to where her daughter was." The child was lying unresponsive in the driveway. She grabbed her daughter up right away, brought her home, started rendering aid, and dialed 911.

Tragically, St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Utica declared the kid deceased. State Police said in a news statement that was released on Monday that the driver is not anticipated to face any charges.

According to other reports, this isn't the first death due to a parent unintentionally running over a child. Two weeks ago, a mother accidentally ran over her 10-month-old baby which resulted in the newborn's death, reported News Week

 



 

 

When police got to the scene, an investigation showed that the mother of a 2013 Toyota Highlander had left her 10-month-old child "unrestrained" in the back seat while traveling to see some relatives in the neighborhood. Police claim that after traveling "a short distance to a nearby dumpster," the vehicle returned to a house around the 16600 block in Prince William county to pick up other family members.

However, the unrestrained 10-month-old dropped from the car and onto the street while some of the driver's family members were getting in. The driver rushed out to assist her daughter. Police claim that the car was never put in park when the driver rushed to help the youngster. The child had a serious head injury and died as a result of her injuries. 

In this case, too, no charges were filed against the parent.
