Jones County child crushed by rolling car, killed

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - A 3-year-old Jones County child was killed Saturday when a family car accidentally rolled over her. 

Sheriff Alex Hodge said it happened at the Carson Hill trailer park on Highway 29 north near Soso. 

Officials said the toddler was apparently playing in the family car alone, knocked the car out of gear, panicked, and jumped out on the driver's side. 

She was run over by the front tire as the car rolled backwards. 

The family was visiting relatives at the time of the accident.
