GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A 3-year-old girl died Sunday when a car rolled over her, according to the Greenville County coroner.

Coroner Jeff Fowler said Jashay Dodd was with a group of children playing inside a car at the North Franklin Apartment Complex on Franklin Road about 3 p.m. Sunday.

Troopers said the kids left the driver's side door open when they got out of the car and it started to roll backwards.

They said the open door knocked Jashay down and she was run over by one of the tires.

Fowler said she was taken to Greenville Memorial Hospital where she died. No other children were injured.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating the accident and said no charges have been filed in the case.
