Bossier child, accidentally run over by dad, dies

Posted: Updated:

BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) - A toddler has died after being accidentally run over by her father as he pulled out of his driveway in Bossier City.

Police Sgt. Brian Griffith says 27-year-old Damion Dacaldacal (dah-KAL-dah-kahl) told investigators he had placed his three children into his truck to take them to daycare Thursday morning. He then walked back to the house to secure his home and didn't realize that his 14-month-old daughter had gotten out of her car seat and walked in front of the vehicle, which had been backed into the driveway.

Dacaldacal returned to the vehicle and began to pull out when he ran over the child. Griffith says the child was pronounced dead at University Health.

Griffith says police don't foresee filing any charges in the case.
