Toddler killed in driveway tragedy

A TODDLER has tragically died after being run over by the family car outside a unit complex in Brisbane.

It happened on Garnet Street at Clayfield around 5.30pm on Friday.

It’s understood the two-year-old girl was run over by her father as he reversed the family car out of the driveway.


The little girl sustained life-threatening injuries and was treated by paramedics at the scene before being rushed to hospital.

She was transported to Brisbane’s Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital where sadly she died of her injuries shortly after arriving.

Police have described the incident as a terrible accident.

Neighbours have told the Courier Mail the little girl’s father was seen cradling his daughter’s badly injured body immediately after she was struck.

The family was reportedly in the process of moving into a unit at the Garnet Street complex at the time of the tragedy.

The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident.
