Emergency crews were dispatched around 12:40 p.m. to the 1100 block of Old SR 74 on a report that an infant had been run over in a driveway, according to a press release from the Union Township Police Department.

The infant was taken by a medical helicopter to a local hospital, the release stated, but died from her injuries Tuesday night.

Cincinnati-area media reports indicate the infant was in a carrier when a mother sat it down on the ground to tend to another child inside a vehicle, which divided her attention. The mother then reportedly got back in the vehicle and backed up over the infant.
