A three-year-old girl has died after being hit by a car, police have said tonight.
The child, who has yet to be named, suffered serious head injuries when a black Skoda Citigo collided with her at around 5.45pm yesterday on Brunswick Street, Leamington Spa, Warks.
She was taken to hospital where she died this evening.
A 32-year-old woman from Leamington was arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.
Superintendent Emma Bastone from Warwickshire Police said: “Our thoughts remain with the family of the little girl following this terrible incident.
“We have launched a thorough investigation into how the collision occurred and we’re keen to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident or saw the child or the car in the moments leading up to the collision.
“We’re also keen to speak to the driver of a silver or blue Mazda we believe was driving behind the Skoda at the time of the collision but left the scene.
