The little girl was riding her plastic tricycle in the parking lot when the crash happened. The driver ... an unidentified 27-year-old man ... stayed on the scene and was questioned by police. He was not taken into custody.
The two-year-old died on her way to the hospital. The crash is still under investigation.
This isn't the first tragedy of its kind in Mendota. Almost exactly one year ago ... a woman was backing out of her driveway when she hit her two children. Her five-year-old son did not survive.
