A 15-month-old toddler died from her injuries after being run over by a vehicle Sunday afternoon in suburban Boca Raton, according to a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office report.

A father told investigators he was waiting for his wife and child to come out of their home near the 10200 block of Hidden Springs Court when he backed his car into the driveway to avoid standing water, the report states.

The girl came outside and went towards the car when she was run over by the front right tire, PBSO says. The girl’s mother drove her to the hospital but she later died as a result of her injuries.

The case is under investigation by PBSO.
