A Sheriff's Department spokesman says DEP Joe Reily was washing his truck at his home Sunday afternoon and thought his daughter Kaley had gone inside, but it turned out she was behind his truck and he backed into her.
The little girl was rushed to the hospital and later died of her injuries.
Sheriff Larry Campbell called it a tragedy.
"Our hearts go out to the family," he said.
