CORINNE, Box Elder County — A 3-year-old girl was hospitalized after she was run over by her mother in the driveway of their home.

Box Elder County sheriff's deputies said the accident happened Wednesday afternoon when the toddler's mother was working on a car.

"Mom is leaving to get something for the car; nobody noticed the kid's behind the car and she backs over her," Box Elder County sheriff's deputy Kevin Potter said Thursday. The girl was pulled out from under the car and taken to the hospital.

"Surprisingly enough, they're saying the injuries are minor," Potter said.
