Girl, 1, dies after run over by father in driveway

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (WJBK) - A 1-year-old girl is dead after being accidentally run over by her father, according to police.

The father is said to have been washing his car outside at the time. He got inside the vehicle and backed it up, not realizing the girl was behind the car.

Investigators tell FOX 2's Andrea Isom the baby's brother performed CPR, trying his best to revive her. The girl was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital.

"Accidents are called accidents for a reason because they are accidents," says Detroit Police Capt. Darwin Roche.

The incident is still being investigated.
