Child Killed

It’s the second tragedy to happen in Northwest Florida in less than a week.

A little girl was run-over and killed.

The latest accident happened about 5:30 p.m. Thursday night on Smith Road 10 miles North of Panama City.

The Florida Highway Patrol says a five year old was run-over when she ran behind a pick-up truck that was backing up.

Troopers say little Emily Simmons was knocked to the ground and the vehicle rolled over her.

No charges have been filed in connection with the accident.
