BROWNSTOWN, Pa. (AP) РPolice say a 2-year-old Pennsylvania girl was pinned against a barn by a minivan and died.

LNP reports a 23-year-old woman was behind the wheel of the minivan when it “somehow went forward” and struck the child.

West Earl Township Police Chief Brian Brandt says the girl and driver were visiting family at the farm. She was taken to a hospital by ambulance and pronounced dead.

The driver has been interviewed by police. The van will be inspected to see if it was running properly.

Tuesday’s accident happened on the same block where a 19-month-old girl was struck and killed by a skid loader on her family’s farm in November.
