A baby died last Friday morning after being crushed by a vehicle driven by her 17-year-old relative.
Reports indicate that the teenager was reversing out the garage in his mother’s car when the baby, Adiah Samuel, rushed behind the vehicle. The driver did not see the 18-month-old toddler who ran out into the pathway. As a result, she was partially crushed when the car came into contact with her.
The baby was taken to the Arima District Hospital for treatment but succumbed to her injuries.
