Woman accidentally runs over, injures daughter


WHITE BEAR LAKE, Minn. (AP) -- A 10-year-old girl suffered bumps and bruises but is expected to be OK after being struck by a van driven by her mother in the eastern Twin Cities.

White Bear Lake police say the girl was being dropped off to catch a school bus in Birchwood Village when the accident happened Thursday morning.

Police say the girl slipped on a patch of ice in front of the van. The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports the woman told police she hadn't seen the girl when she started driving away.

The Star Tribune reports the girl was treated and released from Regions Hospital in St. Paul.

White Bear Lake Police Chief Lynne Banks says no charges are pending.
