LAS VEGS (AP) — Authorities say a 6-year-old girl is dead after her grandfather accidentally ran over and dragged her as she tried to get into his moving car in southwest Las Vegas.
Metro police say the girl was standing just behind the man's Dodge Magnum on Tuesday when grandfather started driving away.
They say the girl grabbed onto the vehicle and tried to get into it, but the 52-year-old grandfather didn't notice. The child was dragged about 40 feet until the vehicle stopped.
The girl, Censere Mosly-Wedemyer, was taken to the University Medical Center, where she was later pronounced dead.
Police tell KVVU-TV they're calling the death an accident. They say it's the 35th traffic-related death this year in Las Vegas police jurisdiction.
