A four-year-old girl passed after being hit by a car outside her school on Monday, according to the police. The young student was white while standing beside her mother in the car park of Greenfield International School after school hours, at precisely 4.30 pm.
The female driver was reversing when she accidentally stepped on the accelerator instead of the brake, says Brig General Adel Al Suwadi, head of Jebel Ali Police Station. The mother and child were both crushed between the moving vehicle and a parked one.

According to local reports, the child passed away at the scene while her mother was rushed to the nearest NMC hospital with fractures. Brig Al Suwaidi added that the car had been reversing at high speed and both the mother and her daughter happened to be crossing from behind it. The pace was so accelerated that it ran over the girl and her mother, as well as damaging three cars parked.
An ongoing investigation is taking place.
