SERDANG: A Year One pupil was killed after she was run over by her neighbour’s runaway car.
The freak accident occurred on Monday afternoon at Bandar Kinrara when the 45-year-old car owner was about to send the victim and her daughter to school.
It is learnt that she and her neighbour would take turns sending the girls to school.
The accident happened when the two girls were about to get into the car.
While the pupils were alighting the vehicle, the woman got out of the car with the gear still in reverse.
The car reversed and the rear passenger door hit the victim, causing her to fall before being run over by the front tyre.

He said the body was sent to Serdang Hospital for post mortem which revealed the cause of death as severe head injuries.
