This is so sad. Early this morning a child was struck and killed by her own father’s vehicle. He had just dropped his 8 yr old daughter off to the bus stop when the tragic accident happened.
Emergency crews were called to the area of Tamarack Boulevard and Sharbot Drive on the report of a pedestrian being hit with a vehicle.
The girl, 8 years old, was taken from the scene to Riverside Methodist Hospital in critical condition, but later died from her injuries.
We send our deepest condolences to the father and the family.
