Deputies found that the girl had been sledding down a driveway and onto Heritage Lane when she was struck by a Kia Sorento driven by a 49-year-old woman.

The driver didn’t show signs of impairment and speed was not a factor.

Although the little girl was taken to Carroll Hospital Center , her injuries were too severe and she was pronounced dead at 11:09 a.m.

The sheriff’s office continues to investigate and no charges have been filed at this time.


Authorities are not releasing the name of the child or the driver at this time.
