Infant girl dies after mom runs her over in Clermont County, police say

Incident appears to be tragic accident

UNION TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- A 10-month-old girl died after she was run over by a vehicle driven by her own mother Tuesday.

The incident occurred at about 12:42 p.m. in a driveway in the 1100 block of Old Route 74, according to Union Township police.

Lt. Scott Blankenship said it appeared to be a tragic accident. The girl was in a pumpkin seat, and her mother set her down to tend to another older child in a car seat. The mother then got in and backed up, running over the 10-month-old.

An Air Care helicopter flew the infant to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. She died Tuesday evening, police said.

An investigation is underway, but the incident appears to be accidental, police said.
