SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Police say a 1-year-old girl died after her father accidentally struck her with his car at a Sacramento home.

Sacramento Police spokesman Officer Matthew McPhail tells the Sacramento Bee (https://bit.ly/2fxLThE) the girl was in the front yard playing with a 6-year-old sibling when her father pulled into the driveway Saturday and she ran toward him.

McPhail says adults didn’t see 1-year-old Nataly Lopez get hit, but heard the other child cry out. The girl was pronounced dead at a hospital.

He says no charges will be recommended against the girl’s father because it clearly was an accident.

McPhail says neither speed nor alcohol were not factors.
