(WOAI) A San Antonio, Texas family is mourning the death of a six-year-old girl, who was run over by an ice cream truck Thursday afternoon.
Police say the girl jumped onto the back the truck while it was backing up.
The girl slipped and fell underneath it and the truck ran over her.
Investigators say the driver was unaware the girl had jumped on the truck, and her 10-year-old friend tried to get the driver to stop, but he didn't until it was too late.
The girls may have been trying to get his attention, which may have been why he was in reverse, police said.
The child died at the scene.
Police said her family members were inside their home at time of the accident.
Investigators did not file charges against the 50-year-old driver of the truck, because they believed it was a terrible accident.
