NEW SQUARE, N.Y. (AP) — A 2-year-old girl was struck and killed by a car in the parking lot of a supermarket in New Square.

Ramapo police say the toddler was with a parent when she was hit at around 1:30 p.m. Friday.

Ramapo Police Lt. M.J. Reilly says the car was moving slowly and the incident appeared to be a “tragic accident.”

People who knew the family told the Journal News, of White Plains, that the little girl had been named after a grandmother who had been killed years ago in a terrorist bombing in Israel.

Police say the circumstances of the accident are being investigated.
