ORLANDO – A 12-year-old girl accidentally ran over and killed her 2-year-old brother in Orlando, Florida Wednesday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers believe the 12-year-old sister went to start the car as the family was getting ready to leave their home, WESH reports.

The 2-year-old went to the hospital in the same vehicle a little after 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The child was taken to Nemours Children’s Hospital, then Osceola Regional Medical Center before he passed, officials said.

Police are still investigating.
