The child has been identified as eight-year-old Mercedes Elisabeth Campos, who was accompanied by her mother, 28-year-old Alba Guevara, a Salvadoran national from Lords’ Bank.

The police investigation found that the driver was making a right turn from Poinsettia Street onto the Philip Goldson Highway when he ran over Mercedes. Both Mercedes and Guevara were taken to Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital in a Police mobile but the girl died of her injuries while her mother was treated. The police investigation continues.
