Toddler dies after being hit by grandfather’s van in Cypress Park*

An 18-month-old girl was killed Saturday afternoon after being struck by her grandfather’s van as he backed the vehicle down his driveway. CBS2 reports that the girl suffered major trauma after being struck by the van at about 1:50 p.m. in the  3500 block of Marmion Way.  The girl died from her injuries after being transported to a hospital.

* Correction: A previous version of this story said the girl was killed in Highland Park. That’s wrong. The incident took place in Cypress Park.


  1. How tragic! Prayers for the family, especially for the Grandpa.
