Two adult females were bringing children down a flight of stairs at the business at the above address when one of the women dropped a cell phone. As the woman went to retrieve the phone, one of the children continued walking and went into the parking lot. At that time, a gray Chevrolet Impala struck the child. The female driver stopped, got out of her vehicle and attempted to render aid. Paramedics arrived and transported the child to an area hospital where she was pronounced deceased.
The driver, 29, was questioned, did not show signs of intoxication and was released. At this time, no charges have been filed. The investigation is continuing.
