Girl struck by car

A 2-year-old girl falls out of a moving car and is run over, reports WPXI.

This incident happened in Charleroi Wednesday morning at the intersection of Washington Avenue and 8th Street shortly after 7:30 a.m.

A neighbor, Catrece Durbin, witnessed the accident.

“I heard crying and I noticed she was underneath the car,” Durbin said.

Durbin told WPXI reporters the girl was run over by one of the tires of the vehicle.

“He pulls up and starts to back up, and that’s how it happened. She fell out when he was backing up.”

The girl appeared to have been responsive when 911 dispatchers arrived at the scene. She was rushed to the hospital. Her identity has not been released.
