Kassidy’s mother, who has not been identified, was turning left onto Ranchview when the car’s right-rear passenger door opened, allowing Kassidy to fall out into the road.
Investigators suspect the toddler was struck by a dark automobile that failed to stop following the crash, according to Irving police spokesperson Robert Reeves.
According to Reeves, the driver may not have even realized they had hit the child.
While the case is still being investigated, Reeves believes Kassidy was not fastened in a child seat in the moments leading up to her death.
