A Three-Year-Old Girl Has Died After Being Hit By A Vehicle In Peterborough

PETERBOROUGH-A three-year-old girl has died after being struck by a vehicle in the driveway of a home on Woodglade Boulevard in Peterborough.

Officers were called to a motor vehicle collision at approximately 9:00am this morning.
