First responders were called to a home on Elmridge Way at about 4:30 Saturday afternoon.
According to a spokesperson for Sacramento Police Department, the girl was taken to UC Davis Medical Center, where she died.
Witnesses, including neighbors and family members, told police the child was playing in front of her home with a sibling and her mother when the child’s father pulled into the driveway. The child reportedly walked into the car’s path before anyone could intervene.
Investigators are working to determine if the evidence matches that narrative. At this point police say it appears to be a tragic accident.
