OKLAHOMA CITY -- An 18-month-old died after the girl was hit by a tractor Friday at Orr Family Farm, police said.

Zoe Montgomery was transported to OU Medical Center by Mediflight and pronounced dead.

About 75 people were on the hay ride Friday night when the incident occurred.

The mother of the child had set the girl down while the hay ride was stopped. The driver didn't realize anyone had gotten off the hay ride when he reversed his tractor and hit the child, authorities said.

A group of Girl Scouts were on the ride, and were very distraught over witnessing the accident.

Witnesses said when they saw the little girl on the ground, they tried to tell the driver to stop before she was run over, but it was too late to stop the tragedy.

The Orr Family Farm is located at 14400 S Western Avenue. Police are still investigating the incident, and the rides were shut down for the night.
