TONOWANDA, NY – A 10-year-old girl accidentally ran over and killed her mom as they tried to get their vehicle out of a snowbank.

The accident happened last Thursday in an alley as a 48-year-old woman and her daughter were trying to free their vehicle that got stuck in a snowbank while trying to back in their driveway.

Police say the woman had her daughter get in the driver’s seat as she tried rocking the car from an open driver’s side door.

With the car still in reverse, the daughter hit the gas a bit too hard and caused the car to move backwards. Her mother got hit by the door, causing her to fall to the ground and get pinned underneath the car.

Police were called and arrived on the scene to find the woman was still pinned beneath the car. A tow truck lifted the car off of her but she could not be revived and was pronounced dead at the scene.

A Gofundme page has been created to help out the family that has raised nearly $2000.

“Many of us can’t even fathom the pain this family will have to endure for the rest of their lives. As a community we need to come together and provide help and support while this family grieves,” the page reads. “The funds will be released to the family, and a trust set up for the little girl.”

The woman’s pastor said that the church is planning to help the family through the church’s benevolent fund. If you’d rather donate to that fund, send donations to St Mark Lutheran Church at 1135 Oliver Street North Tonawanda, NY.
