PINNACLE, N.C. – A 2-year-old girl died Sunday after her father accidentally backed over her with his vehicle.

The Surry County Sheriff's Office says the dad was trying to rush his other two children to the hospital after they were hurt in a go-kart accident. The dad thought his daughter was in front of the vehicle when he was leaving.

The girl died from her injuries at the hospital. The man's 6-year-old boy was flown to Wake Forest Baptist Medical center for treatment. His 8-year-old daughter was treated and released.

The sheriff's office is still investigating this incident.
