Police have identified the victim as two-year-old Foster Butler, who died from her injuries on New Year’s Day.

The incident happened around noon on Christmas Day on Highway 53.

Police say that a 28-year-old County of Brant area man was moving his car in a driveway when the child somehow got wedged underneath a wheel.

A police spokesperson confirmed to 980 CFPL last week that the girl and the driver are related, though he did not specify the relation.
