REDMOND, Wash. -- A 2-year-old girl was struck by a car and killed Wednesday at the Redmond Town Center, authorities said.
According to Redmond police, the child was struck by a vehicle around 5 p.m. on NE 74th Street where it intersects 164th Avenue NE.
The driver of the car, a 25-year-old man, was reportedly slowing down as he approached a stop sign when the child ran out into the street. He was not able to stop in time.
The girl died at the scene. She was under the care of her nanny at the time.
Officers said the driver stayed at the scene and was fully cooperative. He even took a voluntary blood test.
Drugs and alcohol did not appear to be a factor, investigators said.
"This is a tragic situation for all involved. Our hearts go out to the family of the victim," said Chief Ron Gibson.
The road remained closed as detectives continued their investigation Wednesday night.
