Amazon Van Hit and Killed 2-Year-Old Girl
The child was playing in the parking lot when a truck struck her, causing her death
A 23-month-old girl was killed after being hit by an Amazon van in August. The terrible event occurred on Tuesday, August 16, when a delivery truck was dropping off a package at an apartment complex in Hicks Canyon Park.
According to Irvine Police, emergency services responded to the accident that Tuesday night. However, by the time they arrived, the nearly two-year-old girl was already dead.
Although police have not provided details on the cause of death, it appears that the forceful impact of the delivery truck may have led to instantaneous death. Apparently, the little girl used to play in the parking lot of the housing complex where the fatal incident happened.
While the cause of the collision is still under investigation, police stated that the driver of the Amazon van did not test positive for alcohol or drugs.
Dismayed neighbors in the community blame poor visibility for the accident. Interestingly, a van struck another toddler in the same location two years prior.
