A two-and-a-half-year-old girl was fatally hit by a car on Saturday, June 11 at the end of the morning, rue du Pont-Laverdure, in the Marissel district of Beauvais, as our colleagues from Courrier Picard write.
She was in the parking lot of a garage near the Laverdure skate park at the time of the incident. “
The victim’s mother was present in this garage to put a vehicle up for sale and take into account a loan vehicle, details Caroline Tharot, public prosecutor of Beauvais. ” It appears from the first elements collected that, when this vehicle was taken into account, a garage employee started off without realizing that the first gear was engaged; the vehicle made a sudden jump and hit the child in front. »
The firefighters intervened and could not prevent the death of the little girl. An investigation into manslaughter by the driver of a vehicle has been opened. “
Given her psychological state, the driver at the time of the events – who was not known to the justice services – was taken to hospital “, indicates Caroline Tharot.
