Kenner Police investigating fatality involving a child

 Kenner - The Kenner Police Department is presently investigating a traffic facility involving a 14-month old (female) child.  At approximately 08:55 a.m., Kenner Police began receiving 9-1-1 telephone calls reporting that a child had been struck by a vehicle in the 2400 block of Taffy Drive, in Kenner. 

 As first responders arrived, it was learned that a mother and father had exited their residence leaving the front door open to their home.  The mother / wife was assisting her husband in inputting GPS coordinates into a GPS system inside the vehicle that was backed in a driveway.  Unbeknown to both, the 14-month old had crawled out the open front door and beneath the vehicle.  As the father began to pull out his driveway, he ran over the child. 

 The child was transported to University Hospital, where her death was pronounced.  At the present time this appears to be a tragic accident, and no criminal charges will be filed.  Driver impairment does NOT appear to be a factor in this fatality.   As in any fatality death, the matter will be forwarded to the Jefferson Parish District Attorney’s Office for review. 

 Kenner Police Chief Michael J. Glaser urges anyone who may have witnessed this fatality to call Kenner Police Traffic Investigator Jon Cryer at (504) 712-2236.
