Police say a St. Petersburg man accidentally backed over his 1-year-old daughter who apparently ran out behind him as he left his home.

Spokeswoman Yolando Fernandez told the Tampa Bay Times that 22-year-old Kristian Brown apparently didn’t realize he’d struck the girl with his SUV Thursday evening and continued down the road a short distance before realizing something had happened.

Kriziyah Brown was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say Brown was driving on a suspended driver’s license and was charged with driving with a revoked license that involved a death. Additional charges may be pending.

It was not known whether Brown has an attorney.
