A 20 month old girl suffered injuries Sunday evening when a car apparently backed over her outside a home in rural Madison County. The child was airlifted to St. Louis Children's Hospital where she was listed in stable condition with what police call non-life threatening injuries. The child's name has not been released and the investigation is ongoing.
The Madison County Sheriff's Department was called to the home in the 7600 block of Suhre Road, just north of Alhambra and east of Interstate 55. Police have initially called the incident an accident, saying it was an adult family member who was driving the car that struck the child.
