15-Year-Old Girl Accidentally Kills Her Father With Pickup Truck While Learning How To Drive
A Florida father was accidentally killed by his 15-year-old daughter during a driving lesson when she accidentally hit the accelerator and struck him.
The incident took place on Tuesday night at Anderson Park in Tarpon Springs.
The unidentified man, 46, was teaching his daughter how to park his 2017 Ford F-150 pickup truck at the park when she ‘unintentionally’ struck him, police say.
The father got out of the car as his daughter tried to pull into a parking space in an effort to guide her.
However, the daughter accidentally accelerated forward instead of backing up and the vehicle hopped over a curb and hit her dad, then a tree, according to WFLA.
When first responders arrived to the scene they found the daughter tending to her injured father.
The father was rushed to a hospital and pronounced dead around 8pm.
The names of the girl and her father have not been released.
