Girl Run Over, Killed By Mother’s SUV

HUDSON, Fla. (AP) — A 4-year-old girl died after authorities say her mother accidentally hit her with an SUV in the parking lot of a Tampa Bay area apartment complex.

Florida Highway Patrol reports that mother was backing out of a space Wednesday afternoon but stopped when her husband called to her. As the parents talked, Michelle Ivancsits got out of the vehicle and walked around to the front unnoticed. When the mother moved the vehicle forward, she ran over Michelle.

The girl was taken to a nearby hospital, where she eventually died.

Charges were pending the outcome of the investigation.
