(Scroll down for video) A mother watched in horror as her daughter ran over and killed her younger child with her vehicle.

The 25-year-old mother of three children was washing her SUV in Ruckersville, Virginia, while the truck was running.

When she turned away, her 5-year-old daughter moved the gear shift from park to neutral, causing it to start moving.

As the Ford Explorer rolled backwards, it ran over her daughter, 18-month-old Aeayla A. Camacho.

The girl was crushed to death. The mother was taken to University of Virginia Medical Center after suffering an injury to her ankle while trying to save her daughter.

The woman’s two other daughters, who were both in the car at the time, were not injured.

So far, no charges will be filed, although an investigation into the death is ongoing.
