GREAT FALLS, Montana — Cascade County authorities say a man attempting to park a van struck and killed a 1-year-old south of Great Falls.

The Great Falls Tribune reports (http://gftrib.com/1fsD1tg ) a 39-year-old man from Sand Coulee was moving the family van to a nearby barn when he heard a loud noise, stopped and found he had hit 18-month-old Evelyn Wurz.

The family had just returned from shopping and was moving groceries into the home when the man decided to move the vehicle. Authorities say he did not see the girl approach the passenger side of the vehicle.

She was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead a short time later.
