A San Clemente toddler accidentally ran over her father with a pickup truck last night, according to the OC Register. While the 41-year-old dad was working on the truck, he set his 2-year-old daughter down in the cab. He stepped in front of the vehicle, and she grabbed the gear, sending the truck lurching forward. Luckily the child was not hurt, and the father sustained only minor injuries to his leg.
