Nokomis, Florida -- A 20-month-old child was killed after her mother accidentally ran her over outside a Nokomis mobile home Thursday evening.
Sarasota Sheriff's deputies say the incident occurred on Tarpon Court off Ravenna Street North around 4:35 p.m.
The couple at the home had reportedly just finished making a repair on their Honda Passport SUV and the mother got into the vehicle to pull it forward when she accidentally ran over her daughter.
The mother told police she had last seen her daughter playing with bubbles on the porch and had no idea the child had wandered into the driveway.
The little girl died shortly after being rushed to Venice Regional Hospital.
The incident is still under investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol.
