A Bossier City, Louisiana family is grieving after a father accidentally struck and killed his young daughter with his truck in their driveway.
According to Louisiana Radio Network, 27-year-old Damion Dacaldacal was getting his three children together to bring them to daycare. Dacaldacal lost track of his 14-month-old daughter, who wandered into the driveway.
"He didn't notice that his 14-month-old daughter had gotten out and walked in front of the vehicle," said Sgt. Brian Griffith.
The young girl was struck by Dacaldacal's truck as he attempted to leave his home. He immediately contacted authorities after the accident.
The young girl was rushed to University Health Care, where she was declared dead. Charges aren't expected due to the nature of the incident.
"It's a tragic accident," said Sgt. Griffith. "Just make sure you always have eyes on your children, it's just a hard lesson learned."
