LITTLETON (CBS) – A 10-year-old girl has died following a tragic accident at her home in Littleton Monday. She was run over by her own mother.

Police say Bridget Culhane was lying in her driveway off Matawanakee Trail just before 6 p.m. playing with a pet bird.

Her mother pulled into the driveway in her Honda CRV, didn’t see Bridget and drove right over her. A tire caught her almost from head to toe.

The woman knew she had run over something but didn’t know what until she got out of her SUV.

Police say Bridget got up, cried out that she had been run over, staggered around and then collapsed.

She was airlifted to Children’s Hospital in Boston, where she later died.

Police have discussed the case with the district attorney’s office and they doubt there will be any criminal charges.

The couple has one other child.
