SHERIDAN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities in central Michigan say a 3-year-old girl was killed when her father accidentally backed over her with a truck in mid-Michigan.

The Clare County sheriff's department says the accident happened about 4 p.m. Monday in Sheridan Township, about 80 miles north of Lansing.

It identifies the victim as Sydney Ackerman.

The department says the girl's 38-year-old father "was backing up his truck, didn't see anyone behind him and ... struck his daughter Sydney while she was on her bike behind the vehicle."
