The girl’s mother found her near 154th Street and Dorchester Avenue, and placed her in the back seat of her minivan.

But the girl jumped out of one of the side doors after the van began to move, and ended up being run over by the rear tires, police said.

The girl was taken to St. Margaret’s Hospital in Hammond, Ind. where she was pronounced dead, the statement said.

No charges have been filed in connection with the incident.

    To Just Axin and German Leprechaun,

    It amazes me how ignorant people who make comments on these sites are.
    “nutty kid in the news, a “life filled with out-of-wedlock children…” This is an 11-year old child we’re talking about. Your comments about this child shows exactly what kind of life you have NONE!

    something wrong with the account given by the mother.
    Lots of questions to be answered to find the truth

  • Just Axin

    PP- You need to live in the real world. What kind of outlook is there for an 11 year old whos life is filled with that chaos and drama every day? You gonna go into the hood and mentor her?

  • Just Axin

    PP- and btw, don’t be a coward and hit the “report comment” option. If you don’t like a comment either ignore it or submit your own response.

    You have a mama? Bet she sure has a pretty mouth.

    I actually know what happened, because my mother’s friend witnessed the whole thing. The mother was beating the child in the middle of the street before they got back into the van. More than likely the girl jumped out of the van in fear of her mother, after just being beat! Her mother should be charged with something!
