3-year-old died after father backed up truck
A 3-year-old Houston-area girl has died after being hit as her father backed up his truck in the family's driveway.
Authorities say the father was pulling out of the driveway in the family home in northwest Harris County on Friday when he ran over his daughter.
Officials say the girl apparently got out of the house and was wandering outside when the incident happened.
The father and a neighbor rushed the girl to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Investigators say the girl's death appears to be an accident.
