In Salem, New Hampshire at around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, a 7-year-old girl accidentally ran over her two-year-old sister when their mother permitted the oldest to start the car.
The older sister soon accidentally put the car into reverse in the apartment complex, resulting in the car running over the younger sister. The car backed up all the way, slamming into the neighbor’s house across the street. The mother ran outside to witness the anarchy that unfolded.
“I saw the baby trying to open the door and it wasn’t opening so she was going behind the car and the car was going back and it hit her and she got hurt really bad,” eyewitness Liana Gallagher told news media.
The toddler was rushed to a local hospital, after suffering injuries to her chin, scalp, rib cage and upper right arm. Due to the severity of her injuries, she was helicoptered to Boston Children’s Hospital.
