At approximately 11:45 a.m., emergency responders received reports of an injured child on 535 East Street.

A woman was parked in her Toyota SUV with several children in the car, Washington City Police Public Information Officer Ed Kantor said.

The driver said she was waiting for a delivery vehicle to leave from a driveway before pulling into it. Just as she began to move her car the driver said she didn’t realize the girl had opened a door and tumbled out, falling under a back tire.

“She was conscious, breathing and alert,” Kantor said. “She was transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center with leg injuries.”

No citations were issued.

Washington City Police Department, Washington City Fire Department and Gold Cross Ambulance responded to the incident.

This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement or other emergency responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.
