FORT DUCHESNE -- A 2-year-old Uintah County girl is dead after being run over by an SUV driven by her aunt.

Uintah County Undersheriff John Laursen says Imagine Wissiup died in the accident Thursday afternoon. She would have turned 3 years old on Oct. 30.

The Deseret News reports the girl's 23-year-old aunt thought the child was safe with her in the Dodge Durango when she pulled forward in the driveway.

Laursen says the girl either didn't make it into the vehicle or somehow fell out before being run over.

She was pronounced dead at the Uintah Basin Medical Center.
