Newborn girl falls from mother’s SUV, dies in Virginia

Authorities say a 10-month-old baby girl in North Virginia died when she fell from her mother’s SUV, which fell on her head as she was still in the driveway when anxious parents ran toward her. Told.

Prince William County Police said the crash happened at 1:15 a.m. Sunday in Woodbridge, where a 35-year-old woman was driving a 2013 Toyota Highlander in the back seat with her daughter.

After the toddler was opened, the mother drove a short distance to a dumpster and then back to the house where they were going to visit the family – stopping for a while to pick up extra relatives.

“When a family member opened the back door of the car, the unruly child fell out of the car and onto the road,” police said. “The driver got out of the car immediately to check on the baby.”

But in her haste, the mother apparently did not apply the emergency brake.

Police said the vehicle’s transmission was still in the driveway when the driver got out of the vehicle, causing it to move forward where it hit the child.

The tragedy occurred at 1:15 p.m. Sunday in Woodbridge, Virginia.

The agency said the tragic child “suffered a severe head injury and his mother rushed him to the hospital,” adding that the girl died later in the day.

No charges have been filed in the tragic incident.

The names of the mother and her daughter have not been released due to changes in Virginia law, police said.
