Aurora toddler hit by van dies

AURORA, Colo. (AP) - A 22-month-old Aurora girl has died after she was run over by a cargo van owned by a children's transportation company.

Laniece Fletcher died late Saturday, a day after she was run over by the van in the parking lot of a condo development.

KUSA in Denver reports that the van is owned by the Kids Wheels company, which takes children to specialized learning programs.

Kids Wheels owner Beverly Vraton told the station that the driver was a trained pro but that there was "no way" the driver could see the child.

Aurora Police say they are investigating but have not issued any citations in the death. KUSA reports an autopsy was scheduled for Tuesday.
