Emergency crews were dispatched around 12:40 p.m. to the 1100 block of Old SR 74 on a report that an infant had been run over in a driveway, according to a press release from the Union Township Police Department.

The infant was taken by a medical helicopter to a local hospital, the release stated, but died from her injuries Tuesday night.

Cincinnati-area media reports indicate the infant was in a carrier when a mother sat it down on the ground to tend to another child inside a vehicle, which divided her attention. The mother then reportedly got back in the vehicle and backed up over the infant.

Cincinnati-area media report that the incident was an accident.

The accident is currently under investigation, according to police. It was not immediately clear whether charges would be filed in relation to the incident.
