In a heartbreaking incident, a 2-year-old girl tragically lost her life after being struck by a truck driven by a 3-year-old child in California. The devastating accident occurred at a gas station in Woodland over the weekend, leaving the community in shock and mourning.

According to authorities, the young girl was standing near a taco stand at the edge of the gas station parking lot when the incident took place. Woodland police responded to the scene shortly before 4 p.m. local time, where they found the toddler had been hit and sustained critical injuries.

Despite being rushed to the hospital by family members, she succumbed to her injuries and passed away. The owner of the truck involved in the incident was identified by officers at the scene.

It was reported that a 3-year-old child was in the backseat of the truck in a car seat. When the owner entered the gas station store, the child managed to exit the car seat and climbed into the driver’s seat, inadvertently setting the vehicle in motion.
