A teenage girl who was learning how to park a pick-up truck accidentally struck and killed her father in Florida on Tuesday, police said.
The father, 46, was teaching his 15-year-old daughter how to park a 2017 Ford F-150 in the parking lot of Anderson Park in Tarpon Springs, a spokesperson for the Tarpon Springs Police Department confirmed.

The incident occurred after the dad left the truck and stood in front, thinking his daughter would then back the vehicle into a parking spot, according to authorities.
Instead, she accidentally hit the gas pedal while the car was in drive, sending it lurching over a curb, and pinning her father to a tree, the spokesperson said.
The man was transported to AdventHealth North Pinellas Hospital shortly after the 5:30 p.m. incident, and he was pronounced dead just before 8 p.m., the spokesperson said.
The incident remains under investigation, and police have not identified the father or daughter.
