Southeastern Michigan authorities are investigating the death of a 1½-year-old girl who was hit by a vehicle backing out of a driveway.
The Oakland County Sheriff's Department says the accident happened Saturday in Orion Township, about 30 miles north-northwest of Detroit.
Undersheriff Michael McCabe says a 42 year old township man was backing down the driveway when the Rochester girl got in its path.
McCabe says the man didn't see her and hit her. The undersheriff says the girl was pronounced dead at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak. Her name wasn't immediately released.
