KEARNS, Utah - A family is mourning the loss of their little girl after a horrific accident in Kearns Friday morning.

According to officials, 20-month-old Kendra Moad's grandfather went outside to move his truck and didn't see the toddler had followed him.

"He got into the red Chevy pickup truck parked at the residence to pull it forward so he could move the garbage cans and unfortunately the child managed to get under, in front of car and he ran over the child," Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyle said. "Very tragic situation here today."

Emergency crews said they were called to the home near 5060 S. 4400 W. at about 10 a.m.

Authorities said Kendra was rushed to the hospital with severe head injuries but did not survive.
