Toddler Killer By Fathers Car In Leeds
A 15 month old girl has died after being by a car in Leeds, thought to have been driven by her dad.
Police and paramedics were called to an address in Leeds following reports that a black Toyota Avensis had struck a 15 month old girl.
West Yorkshire Police said the child was taken to Leeds General Infirmary but was pronounced dead a short time later.
A spokesman said the driver of the car, understood to be the girl's father, has been spoken to by officers.
He said officers were called to the incident in Cromwell Mount, in the Belle Isle area of the city, at 7.36pm on Saturday.
Sergeant Carl Quinn, of West Yorkshire Police Major Collision Enquiry Team, said: "We are conducting a full investigation to establish the circumstances surrounding this child's death, although early indications are that this appears to have been a tragic accident.
"We are working closely with the child's family to support them at what will clearly be a very difficult time for them."
