Police said witnesses reported seeing Cole stopped in the roadway, apparently trying to retrieve a sandal, shortly before the northbound vehicle hit her.

Cole was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The child escaped with minor injuries.

The 68-year-old driver told investigators he did not see the woman or the girl until it was too late.

The incident remained under investigation.
