Toddler dies after being hit by daycare van in Atlanta

ATLANTA — Atlanta police say a 2-year-old girl has died after being hit by a daycare van.

Atlanta police spokesman John Chafee says a daycare van was dropping children off Tuesday afternoon and the driver hit the girl while backing the van out of a parking lot. Chafee says the girl was playing outside and went behind the van before the driver put it into gear.

Chafee says the girl was not one of the children being dropped off. She was in extremely critical condition before being pronounced dead at Grady Memorial Hospital.

Chafee says the crash is under investigation and charges haven't been filed.
