CANTON, Mich. (WJBK) -- A benefit is planned for the family of an elementary school student who died after being hit by a vehicle during morning drop-off.

Authorities say after Emily Taylor got out of the car Monday her mother began to pull away and, not realizing the girl was possibly trying to get back into the car, struck the 9-year-old.

Canton paramedics were called to Ruth Eriksson Elementary in Canton. Canton Deputy Chief Debra Newsom says, to her indication, the girl was at one point sitting up and speaking with first responders. She was transported to the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor where she was later pronounced dead.

Officials at the Holiday Inn & Suites in Canton, where Emily's mother works, say they'll host a spaghetti dinner on April 22 from 5-9 p.m. with proceeds going to the family.

The hotel is located at 3950 S. Lotz Road.
