12-year-old girl run over while sunbathing in Raynham driveway

Police said a medical helicopter transported the girl to Boston Children's Hospital where she is expected to survive.

A 12-year-old girl was partially run over by a relative on Sunday afternoon while sunbathing in her driveway, leaving her with serious injuries, authorities said in a news release.

Raynham police and firefighters said they responded to a single family home on Hall Street around 2:52 p.m. for the report of a child struck by a vehicle.

Medics reportedly treated the girl on the scene before a helicopter brought her to Boston Children’s Hospital where she is expected to survive. 

“A preliminary investigation indicates that the victim was sunbathing in her driveway when a 41-year-old male relative pulled into the driveway, not realizing the child was there,” police said in the release.
