UNION TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - The 10-month-old baby who was accidentally run over by her mother has passed away, Union Township Police say.

The coroner said Hadley Clements died from presumed blunt trauma.

The incident happened around 12:45 the 1100 block of Old Route 74 near Elick Lane Tuesday.

Police said the mother had the 10-month-old in a carrier when she sat it down to tend to another child.

"It appears that the child in the pumpkin seat was sat down on the ground while a mother attended to another child inside the vehicle dividing her attention, got back in the vehicle and backed up over the child," police said.

The infant was flown to a local hospital. She succumbed to her injuries on July 3.

Police said first responders performed life-saving procedures on the child before flying the infant to Children's Hospital.
