Young Girl Killed in Virginia Sledding Accident

Posted: Updated:

A young girl taking advantage of Virginia’s snowfall was sledding down a driveway Thursday when she was hit and killed.

The unidentified girl from Florida was visiting her grandparents in Chesterfield County. Investigators say the girl was sledding down a driveway when she slid into the path of an SUV. 

A witness described the girl's father lying on top of her with a blanket as she fought for her life. She later died from her injuries at a nearby hospital.

A witness said the driver stopped and waited at the scene. There's no word on whether he'll be charged.
