Toddler dies after being struck by vehicle in Phoenix!

A 1-year-old boy was killed after being struck by a vehicle in Phoenix.

According to the Phoenix police the child was hit near 21st Avenue and Broadway Road. Police believe the victim's parents lost sight of the boy and he was struck by a neighbor's car.

Sgt. Jonathan Howard said that, the boy's parents were on their way to the hospital when police and fire crews intercepted them near 7th Avenue and Broadway to provide critical care.

ABC15 reported, the little boy's aunt tells their family had gathered for dinner, the adults were cooking and several kids were playing but they don't know how the 1-year-old slipped out of sight. She is working on a fundraising campaign to help the victim's parents pay for funeral costs.

Lt. Mark Tovar Sr. said that, "When you look at the human aspect of it, your child is gravely injured, there's a lot of things racing." "It did hamper our efforts to help them a little bit."

Yanei and Fatima Garcia live in the mobile home park and heard screams that didn't match the typical yelling of kids playing outside.

"Screams, like pain screams, like really bad," said Yanei who remembers seeing the little boy in his mother's arms as she cried.

"I have it in my head, how I saw him without any life," Yanei said.
