A 4-year-old child hit by a car in Pasco County has died, the Florida Highway Patrol confirms.
It happened in Hudson Wednesday afternoon. The sheriff's office says before the accident, her mother was backing out of a parking spot.
The girl, who authorities identified as 4-year-old Michelle Ivancsits, was inside the car.
Then, girl's father stopped her mother, and came up to the driver's side of the car to talk to her.
In the meantime, the girl got out of the car and went front of it. The mother then accelerated forward and ran over the girl, FHP said.
She was flown from the scene in critical condition, and died at the hospital.
Florida Highway Patrol is investigating.
