A family has revealed the tragic death of a three-year-old toddler on her birthday after she ran into the road and got knocked down by an on-coming vehicle.

She was immediately rushed to a children’s hospital where she later died.
Fox 6 reports that the birthday party had continued after her death, as her family believes that was what the tot would have wanted.
“It’s just still unreal to me that this happened. She was just here preparing for her party all morning… She saw her granddad, she ran over there….
“She was just a happy baby. Always happy. Always happy. Everybody loved her… everybody is going to miss her. She had an impact on everybody.”
The police revealed that the driver of the car which had killed little Jayda, had stayed after the accident and had been totally cooperative, helping with the investigation.
May her sweet soul rest in peace.
