Toddler accidentally killed by father in accident

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A 22-month-old girl has died after being hit by her father's vehicle.

Authorities say Kinlee Lathery's unidentified father hit the girl with a Lincoln Navigator in the family's driveway Friday night in south Louisville, Ky. They say he was unable to see the child because of the vehicle's height.

He loaded the girl into his SUV and called 911 on the way to Kosair Children's Hospital. The dispatcher convinced him to pull over and wait for an ambulance, but emergency medical responders were unable to help the child.

Louisville police spokesman Dwight Mitchell says police believe the child's death was a tragic accident and no charges are expected.
