Details Emerge in Death of 6-Year-Old Struck by Truck

Posted: Updated:

More details are emerging in a fatal accident that killed a 6-year-old girl in Charlottesville.

Monday, the child was hit by a pickup truck on Nelson Drive, then taken to the University of Virginia Medical Center where she died from her injuries.

Police now say the child stepped from behind a parked car into the path of the oncoming Ford pickup truck. The girl did not live in the neighborhood, but her family was in the area visiting friends.

The driver of the truck remained at the scene. He was also visiting family in that area.

Police say speed was not a factor. Once the investigation is finished, the case will go to the commonwealth's attorney for further review.
