SHERIDAN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP/WNEM) -

Authorities say a 3-year-old girl has died after her father accidentally backed over her with a truck in Mid-Michigan.

Sydney Ackerman was riding a bike on Monday in Clare County's Sheridan Township, about 80 miles north of Lansing, when she was struck.

Undersheriff Dwayne Miedzianowski says her 38-year-old father Christopher Ackerman didn't see anyone behind him.

Deputies were assisted by the Michigan State Police Accident Reconstruction Team, Mobile Medical Response Ambulance and the Clare Fire Department.
