The accident took place because the driver accidentally stepped on the accelerator pedal.

A four-year-old girl died and her mother was injured when they were run over in a school area in Dubai's Jebel Ali.

Brigadier Dr Adel Al Suwaidi, Director of Jebel Ali Police Station, said that the police received a report about the incident at 3.40pm on Monday about the accident.

He said the accident took place when a motorist, who was reversing his vehicle, accidentally stepped on the accelerator pedal instead of the brake. Both mother and child were crushed between the moving vehicle and a parked one.

The speed of the car was so high that three vehicles parked adjacent to each other were damaged.

This is a developing story.
