INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A 2-year-old girl died Monday after being run over by a vehicle outside an east side home.

Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department were called to the scene in the 3200 block of Ashland Ave. shortly after 4 p.m.

Police say the child had just returned home from the grocery with her mother and a family friend when the accident happened.

Officers don’t believe the driver was aware the child was behind the vehicle when backing up.

The driver remained at the scene to assist officers with the investigation.

“It’s just a tragic situation,” said Capt. Karen Arnett.
