Kenner PD: 14-month-old dies after father accidentally runs over her

KENNER, LA (WVUE) - A 14-month-old girl was killed after her father accidentally rolled over her with his truck, in their driveway. The incident occurred Wednesday, just before 9:00 a.m. in the 2400 block of Taffy Drive in Kenner.

According to Kenner Police Lt. Brian McGregor, the child's mother and father walked out of the home towards the father's truck, leaving the front door of the home open. While the mom was helping the dad with a GPS device, the child crawled out the open door, undetected. She wandered into the driveway before the man rolled over her, not knowing that she was there.

The child was brought to University Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Police are performing a toxicology test on the Dad, but they believe that alcohol did not play a factor in the incident, McGregor said. Police also say that no charges will be filed in the incident.

The investigation into the incident continues. Kenner Police Chief Michael Glaser asks anyone if they witnessed the incident to please call Kenner Police Traffic Investigator Jon Cryer at 504-712-2236.
