The father got out of the car as his daughter tried to pull into a parking space in an effort to guide her.
However, the daughter accidentally accelerated forward instead of backing up and the vehicle hopped over a curb and hit her dad, then a tree, according to WFLA
When first responders arrived to the scene they found the daughter tending to her injured father.
