An 18-month-old girl has died after being run over by a pickup truck south of Buckeye.

Police said a family friend had come to visit the father of the girl at their home in the community of Rainbow Valley. When the friend was leaving at about noon Thursday, the father lost sight of the girl.

"As the family friend was getting ready to drive away, the father was going behind the pickup, the girl at some point got out of sight and the driver of the pickup went right over the child," said Officer Chris Hegstrom with the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

MCSO said it's a tragic accident and they don't expect charges.
