LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - A Longview child has been injured after an accident with a lawn mower.

Police say that the mother of the 4-year-old child was mowing the lawn while the little girl was playing on the sidewalk in front of their home. As the mother backed up the mower, the child walked toward her, leading to the mother accidentally backing over the child.

According to authorities, the child was taken to a Longview hospital before being flown to a hospital in Dallas. She has injuries to her foot, knees, and has lacerations across her stomach. Police say she is probably going to lose a toe, and she is in serious condition.
