Toddler struck and killed in family driveway


TOWN OF DALE, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities say a 2-year-old girl died after being struck by a vehicle driven by her father in the Town of Dale in eastern Wisconsin.

The Outagamie County Sheriff's Department and other first responders were called to a home shortly before 5:30 p.m. Saturday after the girl was struck in the driveway. She suffered a severe head injury and was airlifted to a hospital in Neenah, where she died.

Sgt. John Hoffmann of the sheriff's department says alcohol was not a factor in the incident, which remains under investigation.

The girl's name has not been released.
