3-year-old girl dies when struck by grandmother parking car on Aldine Street in Mayfair, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
The incident happened around 8 p.m. on the 4000 block of Aldine Street.
Police say a 3-year-old girl was coming out into the street to greet her grandmother when she was hit by the car her grandmother was trying to park.
The grandmother was unaware that the child had opened the door and continued in reverse, pinning the child between the door and a tree, Pace said.
Police say it appears the grandmother was trying to park when the 3-year-old ran toward the car to meet her.
The grandmother got out of the car to protect the girl. But she did not put the car in park, and the car rolled, trapping the girl against a tree, police said.
