The toddler was rushed to the local hospital where she died from her injuries, the station reported.
The family has set up a GoFundMe to help with the costs of her funeral.

The truck that struck and killed Felicity on Sunday afternoon belonged to Cool Times Ice Cream, according to KSDK. The “standout blue trucks” carry Blue Bunny treats and can be rented out for events and parties, according to its website.
While Felicity was crossing, the blue vehicle started moving forward and struck her, police told the Post-Dispatch.
