3-year-old girl dies in tragic accident

A pickup truck collided with a 3-year-old girl in a south Ada County neighborhood late Saturday afternoon, resulting in fatal injury to the toddler.
Deputies are investigating what happened. The crash appears to be an accident.
The collision occurred outside a home in the 9500 block of Littlewood Drive just after 5:15 p.m. Saturday.
It appears the driver of the truck had just pulled out of the driveway where the girl lives and was moving slowly down the street and did not see the girl was running alongside the truck when the collision occurred.
The driver stopped and called 911 immediately. Ada County deputies and paramedics arrived moments later. Paramedics took the girl to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead a short time later.
Deputies were still collecting evidence and doing interviews Saturday night. Traffic will be restricted in that area for the next several hours.
