WATCH ABOVE: A 4-year-old died in a tragic daycare mishap in which a woman not authorized to pick up the child, did so – Mar 23, 2016

Plenty of questions are being asked after a 4-year-old boy was accidently run over by a woman in an SUV who had no authorization to pick up the boy from daycare. The woman had been picking up her grandchild who was reportedly a friend of 4-year-old Anthony Craft.

Harris County sheriff’s deputies in Texas said an 81-year-old woman came to pick up her grandchild and another child from the K.D. Learning Centre on Tuesday.

With the woman’s grandchild already in the vehicle, she started to back up, but realized 4-year-old Anthony wasn’t in the vehicle and was stuck between the wheel of the SUV and another car. When the woman went to help Anthony, she fell out of the Navigator, and the vehicle continued to reverse into the entrance of the daycare.

“The Navigator itself had no one driving it, made a full circle and came to a stop at the entrance of the K.D. Learning Center,” Thomas Gilliland of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said.

The woman said she didn’t have any permission to pick up the child, but that the daycare allowed it. Craft’s family say Anthony was supposed to be picked up by a bus and driven to school for the afternoon.

The daycare centre has been closed until further notice, reads a sign posted outside.

A Grand Jury will decide if she will face any charges.
