According to a sheriff’s news release, “On Friday, July 26, 2013, at approximately 8:07 p.m., Deputies from the Apple Valley Police Department responded to the report of a six year old female who had been accidently run over in her grandparent’s driveway. The young girl had been riding in her aunt’s Jeep Wrangler along with her mother and her grandmother. Upon arrival to the home, the grandmother exited the vehicle, followed by the juvenile and her mother. The driver of the Jeep Wrangler began to back out of the driveway, but stopped, sensing she may have struck something at the rear of her vehicle.

The mother ran to the rear of the vehicle and found her daughter underneath. Apple Valley Sheriff Deputies and Paramedics responded to the scene. The young girl was transported to St. Mary’s Medical Center where she succumbed to her injuries.

The Apple Valley Sheriff’s Station’s Major Accident Investigation Team is conducting the investigation.

Tragically, many children are killed or seriously injured in back over incidents. A back over incident typically occurs when a vehicle coming out of a driveway or parking space backs over an unattended child because the driver did not see him or her.”

Safety tips:

• Teach children not to play in or around cars.
• Supervise children carefully when in and around vehicles.
• Always walk around your vehicle and check the area around it before backing up.
• Be aware of small children-the smaller a child, the more likely it is you will not see them.
• Teach children to move away from a vehicle when a driver gets in it or if the car is started.
• Have children in the area stand to the side of the driveway so you can see them
• Make sure to look behind you while backing up slowly in case a child dashes behind your vehicle unexpectedly.
• Take extra care if you drive a large vehicle because they are likely to have bigger blind zones.
• Roll down your windows while backing so you can hear what is happening outside of your vehicle.
• Teach your children to keep their toys and bikes out of the driveway.
• Because kids can move unpredictably, you should actively check your mirrors while backing up.
• Do not rely solely on the detection devices that many newer cars are equipped with.
