COATS, N.C. (AP) - A 23-month-old girl in North Carolina was killed after authorities say she was hit by a car driven by a family member.

Harnett County Sheriff Wayne Coats tells local media outlets that deputies responded Tuesday morning to a report of a pedestrian hit at a home in a town called Coats. When they arrived they found a small child had been hit by a car driven by a female family member in the driveway.

The girl was taken to a hospital, where she died.

Coats is calling the girl’s death an accident. The sheriff’s office is investigating.
