SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 23-month-old girl was in extremely critical condition as of Wednesday night, after being run over by her mother who was backing up her car into an alley Wednesday.
The accident occurred in the alley of 3700 Florence St. at 5:24 p.m., said Officer David Stafford of the San Diego Police Department.
The mother was getting several children ready to go and when she backed up and ran over the girl.
The girl is "in really bad shape" at the hospital, Stafford said.
Alcohol was not a factor, Stafford said.
"It is sad that 14 years later people are still being smuggled in tractor-trailers," he said. "There still isn't water, there still isn't ventilation. These criminal organizations, they're all about making money."
