WESTMINSTER, Texas -

The Collin County Sheriff's Office says a 16 month old girl died after accidentally being run over by a pickup truck in the family's driveway.  The accident happened in the 300 block of Westmoreland in Westminster, TX.  Family members say the father was getting ready to leave in the truck and his 4 year old son knew where the truck's keys were kept.  Apparently, the boy took the keys, got into the truck and started it. 

Family members say there was a defect with the truck, that allowed it to be started while in first gear and the truck rolled forward, killing the young girl.  Sheriff's deputies are still investigating.
