Tragic: Baby killed by 4-year-old brother while driving their father’s truck
A Texas toddler was killed when she was run over by a truck driven by her 4-year-old brother, police said.
The 16-month-old girl was struck down in her family home’s driveway in Westminster on Sunday afternoon after her older sibling reportedly grabbed the keys and turned the ignition.
The truck, which reportedly had a defect that allowed it to be started while in first gear, rolled forward.
The children’s father ran outside after hearing the engine starting.
But he could only watch in horror as it rolled over his baby girl and came to a rest against a neighbor’s fence.
MyFoxDFW reports that the girl died instantly.
Cops are now investigating the tragedy. It is not yet clear whether the parents will face charges.
