Girl killed in hay ride accident

BIG ISLAND (HAWAIINEWSNOW) - Halloween night activities turned tragic Saturday night as a 7-year old girl died after being run over by a trailor attached to a truck.

It happened in the Hawaiian Ocean View Estates area at the Ocean View Evangelical Community Church just after 7.

Big Island police say the girl was participating in a hay ride, and jumped off the trailor as it came to a stop.  That's when she was run over.

The girl was rushed to Kona Community Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Police do not believe speed or alcohol were involved in the incident, but a negligent homicide investigation has been opened.
