RTL Today – Piennes, France: child killed by uncle in horrific accident


A three-year-old was killed in eastern France on Saturday after being hit by a reversing car driven by his uncle.

The incident occurred on Saturday in Piennes, in the department of Meurthe-et-Moselle near Luxembourg. According to French media, the girl suffered cardiac arrest after being hit by the car and first responders were unable to revive her.

Police are investigating the incident but it appears to have been an accident as the uncle did not spot the child as he was backing up. The man was not under the influence of alcohol, France Bleu said, and was not arrested because he did not pose a risk of flight.
