In Louisville, Kentucky and other towns and cities, there is one particular area at a home that can be and is extremely dangerous to children – “the driveway”. Unfortunately and tragically, driveway or back over accidents and incidents continue to be reported in Kentucky and other parts of the United States. In Louisville, Fox 41 News reported that a 22 month old girl died as a result of getting hit by a vehicle in a driveway. It was reported that the vehicle was driven by the girl’s father. This appears to be an incident in which the driver just did not see the child as he was back up or driving in the driveway. Toddlers are short and small and often times cannot be seen by a driver operating a vehicle in the driveway. News reports indicate that no charges are anticipated regarding this incident.

The death of a toddler due to a back over or driveway accident is quite tragic and a tremendous loss for the family and community. You can read more about this story at
