Police have not released the name of the child or the name of the driver. There are not yet details surrounding the circumstances of the accident, or if the driver remained on the scene, but an investigation is ongoing.

There are no condolences deep enough to pass along to this little girl's family. Their lives are forever changed. Our thoughts are with the toddler's family and friends and the entire Waterford Works community.

A very good childhood friend of mine was hit by a car and died when she was just 14 and I still of her all the time. It's days like this that the pain becomes so fresh again.

I'll continue to update you on this story as more information becomes available.
