An accident this morning in Montrose left a 20-month-old dead.  The Lee County Sheriff’s Office reports that a little before 11:15 this morning, Kayla James backed a vehicle from her driveway at 2480 270th Street in order to access a dumpster.  20-month-old Meyah James was with her sister when she saw her mother’s vehicle nearby and walked up behind it.  Kayla James reversed the vehicle to return to the residence, unwittingly backing over her daughter.  Meyah died of injuries sustained in the accident.  Kayla James was transported to the Fort Madison Community Hospital.
