Pomona girl run over by neighbor’s car

POMONA — Officials rushed a 1-year-old girl to the hospital in critical condition Friday after she was run over by a neighbor’s car.
Police received 9-1-1 calls shortly after 2 p.m. reporting a child had been run over by a car in the 1300 block of Laurel Avenue, Pomona police Sgt. Patrick O’Malley said in a written statement.
“Pomona police officers responded and located the child in the arms of family members,” the statement said.
Authorities flew the injured girl by helicopter to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, O’Malley said.
The girl’s neighbor, a 45-year-old woman, apparently ran over the girl accidentally in her Toyota Corolla, police said.
“The preliminary investigation indicates the small child walked out of the garage at the same time the neighbor was backing their vehicle out of he driveway,” according to the police statement.
Police did not suspect drugs or alcohol were involved.
