ALBERTVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say a mother’s car ran over her 1-year-old daughter outside a tire shop, killing her in what police are calling an accident.

AL.com reports (https://bit.ly/2sp9fAH ) that Albertville Police Assistant Chief Jamie Smith says Allison Demarri was pronounced dead at a hospital Friday afternoon. Smith says Demarri was inside Pedro’s Tire Shop with her mother, Maria Perez Lucas. Smith says the mother had to move her car in the lot and didn’t know her daughter had followed her outside. She didn’t realize her car had hit the girl until she saw her while heading back toward the shop after getting out.

Smith called Demarri’s death an “unfortunate tragedy” and said police do not expect any criminal charges to be filed.
