Father accidentally runs over 3-year-old child with truck

A 3-year-old Roma child was tragically killed Friday after she was inadvertently run over by a truck driven by her 34-year-old father in Thessaloniki.

According to reports, the man had apparently started up the truck and did not notice that his daughter was on the road.

The child was rushed to hospital by her father but was pronounced dead on arrival.

The girl’s mother and siblings were also in the truck when the accident occurred.

A similar fatal incident occurred last week, also in Thessaloniki, when a 51-year-old Roma accidentally backed into his 1-year-old grandson.

He was charged with manslaughter and abandoning the scene of an accident.
