BROOKFIELD, Conn. (AP) _ An 8-year-old Brookfield girl has died after being partially ejected from an SUV that rolled down a driveway and into a tree.

Police say Margaret O’Connor had climbed into the unoccupied sport utility vehicle just after 4 p.m. Wednesday and somehow either released the parking brake or put the SUV into gear.

It rolled about 150 feet before hitting the tree. Police say the girl was partially ejected and died on impact.

No charges have been filed. Police say the girl’s mother was home at the time of the accident.
