The Rolla Police Department says a toddler has been run over and killed in a car accident.
According to a police report, on July 21 at 7:22 a.m., the Rolla Police Department’s Central Communications received at 911 call of a motor vehicle accident involving a child on the parking lot of the Oak Tree Apartment complex which is located 2007 Forum Drive in Rolla.
In the initial report, it was reported that a small child had been struck by a vehicle on the parking lot. Police, Fire and EMS were dispatched to the scene and the child was transported to the Phelps County Regional Medical Center where she was later pronounced deceased.
Police say the girl’s mother, Megan Toole, age 24, was in a 2004 Chrysler Pacifica backing from a parking space in the apartment complex when she apparently failed to see her daughter behind the van. The vehicle then struck the child, 2-year-old Alexie Toole, which resulted in her fatal injuries.
