Toddler killed after being hit by car 'her dad was driving'

A 15-month-old girl has died in a "tragic accident" after being hit by a car apparently driven by her father.

Police and Paramedics were called to an address in Leeds on Saturday evening after reports that a black Toyota Avensis had struck the toddler.

The child was taken to Leeds General Infirmary but was pronounced dead a short time later, West Yorkshire Police said. The driver of the vehicle - understood to be the girl's father - has been spoken to by officers, a police spokesman said.

Sergeant Carl Quinn, of West Yorkshire Police Major Collision Enquiry Team, said: "We are conducting a full investigation to establish the circumstances surrounding this child's death, although early indications are that this appears to have been a tragic accident."

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Major Collision Enquiry Team on 01924 293047 or via 101.
