ONTARIO, OH: Father accidentally runs over, kills 2-yr-old in store parking lot

Posted: Updated:

A family's visit to Walmart turns deadly when a man accidentally runs over and kills his 2-year-old daughter.

The accident happened at 5:22 p.m. on Saturday, March 29, at the Walmart location of 359 N. Lexington-Springmill Road.

According to police, Brooks pulled the 2001 Chevy Suburban truck to the front doors of the store to drop off his passengers, including his 2-year-old daughter La'naya Brooks and her mother 24-year-old Britiney Morales Sayre.

Several passengers, including the toddler, exited the vehicle from the right side and walked around the front of the vehicle to enter the store.

2-year-old La'naya was the last person to walk around the front of the truck.

That's when police say Brooks, who didn't see La'naya, drove off to find a parking space and ran her over in the process.

Several bystanders along with responding officers performed CPR on the toddler.

Springfield Township Fire and EMS transported La'naya to Med-Central Mansfield ER, where she was pronounced dead.

Ontario Police report that no one has been charged or arrested at this time and alcohol is not suspected.
