Father Killed Daughter in a Freak Accident



Evelyn Celgy, a happy two-year-old child, was run over and killed outside Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena where her mother was speaking at Sehion UK convention.

The Nissan Qashqai, driven by her father accidentally ran over her at around 8 am on Saturday 11 July when she was standing in front of the car at a blind spot.  She was rushed to Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre but later succumbed to traumatic brain injuries.

In a statement read at Nottingham coroner’s court on Wednesday, Thomas said he did not see his daughter and had driven only one car length or one and a half and halted hearing his wife screaming.  The forensic crash investigator said the raised driving position of the vehicle had an inherent problem of a substantial blind spot when dealing with bollards.

The coroner described it as one of the most tragic incidents that happened by chance that was unexpected, unpredictable, and the father could not have done anything to avoid the situation.
