Gowrie girl dies after mother hits her with truck

GOWRIE, Iowa (AP) - Officials say a four-year-old Gowrie girl is dead after her mother accidentally backed over her with a pickup truck.

The accident happened Monday afternoon in a private drive in the north central Iowa town.

According to the Iowa State Patrol, Heather Fevold, of rural Gowrie, was backing up when her daughter, Dakota, ran to the passenger side of the pickup. Troopers say Fevold didn't see the child and continued backing up, hitting her. She then pulled forward to free her daughter.

The child was taken to a Fort Dodge hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
