Racine girl, 5, hit and killed by van in driveway

RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - A five-year-old girl was killed in the driveway of a house in Racine.

Police said the girl had just arrived for a party on Saturday when a van backed up and ran over the child, who had her back to the vehicle.

Police said the 16-year-old boy who was driving the van heard people yelling -- but he didn't know he ran over somebody, so he pulled the van forward and ran over the girl again.

Police said the driveway had a steep pitch -- and it might have contributed to the accident, because the van driver did not see the girl.

She was conscious when ambulance personnel arrived. She died later at a Racine hospital.
