Pittsburgh Area Father Arrested on DUI in Accident that Killed Daughter

A Pittsburgh area man has been arrested for drunk driving following a devastating freak accident which killed his 12 year old daughter.

The man and his family had returned home after dropping off a boy with whom his 12 year old daughter had just gone on her first date. Upon pulling into the driveway, the man exited his vehicle in order to take a photo to commemorate the moment. As his daughter began to exit the vehicle, it began to roll backward, and the girl became entangled in the seatbelt. As the car rolled backwards it rolled over the girl, and then dragged her down the road until it struck a tree.

The incident, which occurred at about 8:00pm, killed the girl. The officer on the scene said that the father refused to submit to a Breathalyzer, but was subsequently arrested on a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence.
