A four-year-old girl has died after she was accidentally run over by a heavy piece of loading equipment.

It happened this morning in Daviess County,IN, near Raglesville.

We're told Matthew Wittmer was operating a skid-steer when he stopped to lift two of his kids into the cab.

Officials say a lever was accidentally hit, and the skid-steer moved forward; running over four-year-old Regina Wittmer.

She was flown to Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville where she later died from head trauma.
