A 1-year-old toddler died Tuesday night after she was accidentally run over by her father in the driveway of their home, a police spokesman said.

Chyna Mays, 1645 N. 17th St., was pronounced dead at a hospital from injuries sustained after her head hit the concrete from the impact, Cpl. Don Coppola said.

“This is just a pure accident,” Coppola said.

Shortly before 6 p.m., family members exited the vehicle after returning home and the father, thinking everyone was clear, went to back out the driveway when he hit his daughter, Coppola said.

Coppola said while the accident is still under investigation, police do not expect to make any arrests.
