Six-year-old Alberta girl uninjured after car backs over her in driveway

ST. ALBERT, Alta. — A six-year-old Alberta girl is unhurt after being run over by a car.

RCMP in St. Albert say the girl was riding her scooter on a sidewalk Wednesday when she stopped at the end of a driveway and laid down, possibly to look for something on the ground.

The driver of a parked vehicle was preparing to leave and backed over the child.

The statement from police says the driver immediately stopped and helped the girl, who was conscious.

She was rushed to hospital but was released after doctors confirmed she was not hurt.

Mounties are urging drivers to watch carefully for children playing outside and say parents should also educate their youngsters about bike, scooter and road safety.
