SALUDA, N.C. (AP)—Authorities say a 16-month-old girl died in Saluda after she fell out of a pickup truck being driven by her father.
Saluda City Administrator Erny Williams told The Times-News of Hendersonville that 27-year-old Brian Huff picked up his daughter in his work truck after being called to a family emergency. The truck did not have a child safety seat.
Williams says the death has been ruled an accident, and investigators don't know why the pickup's door opened.
State troopers are helping Saluda police investigate the death.
