HARTFORD, S.D. (AP) — A 14-year-old Hartford girl died when she was run over by a pickup truck driven by her 16-year-old brother.

Authorities say the girl and two other girls were chasing the pickup in a parking lot on Saturday afternoon, hoping to catch a ride. The 14-year-old girl jumped onto the truck’s running board, slipped off and was run over. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office did not immediately release the names of those involved. Authorities called the incident a tragic accident and said no charges will be filed.
