Sacramento child dies after being struck by father's car

Authorities say a 1-year-old girl died after her father accidentally ran her over with his car at a north Sacramento home Saturday afternoon.

The Sacramento Bee reports (http://bit.ly/2fxLThE ) the girl was in the front yard playing with a 6-year-old sibling when her father arrived at the house and the child ran toward it as he pulled in the driveway.

Police say the girl was taken to a hospital, where she later died.

The Sacramento County Coroner's Office website identified Nataly Lopez as the victim.

Police said they don't anticipate an arrest will be made, calling it an accident.

Police said neither alcohol nor speed were not factors in the accident.

The case remains under investigation.
