The child died Saturday after being run over by a skid-steer loader earlier that afternoon.
Police say the accident happened at a residence in Raglesville, Indiana.
That's a town about 70 miles south west of Terre Haute in Daviess county.
A family member was entering the skid-steer when its lever dropped, moving it forward.
The machine ran over the child's head.
She later died in a Louisville hospital from head trauma.
