A two-year-old girl died after she was hit by a car in Surrey Wednesday night.
RCMP Staff Sgt. Blair McColl said the little girl was on a scooter in the alley behind her home on the 134000 block of 83A Avenue when she rode into a moving car around 8:45 p.m. PT.
“The child was taken by air ambulance to Children’s Hospital in Vancouver and approximately an hour after that we were advised she had passed away from her injuries,” said McColl.
McColl says speed and alcohol do not look like factors and police are not planning to charge the driver.
The child’s name was not released by police.
“Early investigations indicate the child had ridden down a driveway and into the vehicle as it drove past in the alley behind the address in question.”
McColl adds charges against the driver are unlikely.
“At this point there are no indications that there will be any charges. No indication of speed, alcohol, anything like that… we still are investigating but the early indication is that the child rode into the vehicle… it wasn’t the other way around.”
