SARASOTA COUNTY, Fla. - Authorities say a child died in an accident in the Nokomis East area.  The 20-month-old girl was reportedly run over in front of a home.

It happened around 4:35pm on Tarpon Court.  That's west of Albee Farm Road south of Laurel Road.

According to the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office, a couple at the home had just finished repairing their SUV and the mother got into the vehicle to move it.  She says she thought her daughter was on the porch when she felt the vehicle go over a bump.  The child was taken to Venice Regional Medical Center, where they were pronounced dead.

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the incident.  No names have been released.  We are told the family recently moved to the area.

We'll have more on this developing story as it becomes available.
