A 5-month-old child was declared dead after she was accidentally struck by a car while she was playing with a car seat, police said.
The accident occurred at an apartment complex in the city of Tamaulipas on Friday morning, according to local authorities.
The girl’s mother and her two sisters were walking down the street when the accident occurred.
The car had driven up and then crashed into a wall and the girl was inside.
Her father, a police officer, was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The car, however, was still on the street.
Local media reports said the accident caused the girl to lose consciousness.
Police and the prosecutor’s office have yet to identify the driver, but the car belonged to the woman who died.
The investigation is ongoing.
