POTOSI, Mo. (AP) - A 1-year-old girl is dead after a weekend driveway accident in St. Francois County.
KMOV-TV reports that the Potosi child was run over outside a home near Desloge on Sunday evening.
Police say the toddler got out of a parked car, which then rolled backward and hit her. She was flown to St. Louis Children's Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
The Missouri Highway Patrol reports that Chief Rick Knight was injured in a crash along Highway 47 Washington County around 4:15 Monday afternoon. Knight's truck rolled over, and he was partially ejected.
Fire department officials say the 51 year old was trapped and had to be pried from the truck.
Chief Knight was taken to St. Anthony's Medical Center in south St. Louis County by ambulance because weather conditions made it unsafe to use a medical helicopter.
His injuries are described as serious, including broken bones.
