Toddler hit by truck in Riverview

RIVERVIEW, Fla. – A 3-year-old girl died after she was hit by a pickup truck early Tuesday morning at Hampton Meadow Way and Legacy Bright Street in Riverview.

According to Crystal Nunez of the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, Brianna Savage was out walking with her mother and a family friend just before 7:30 a.m. when she darted out into the street.

This happened as the pickup truck was coming down the street. Nunez said the driver did not have time to react but did stop after realizing the girl had been hit.

The child was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital-South, but officials were not able to save her.

Nunez said at this time, no charges are expected. She called the situation a tragic accident and said it should be a reminder to parents to be overly-aware when out with children on the roads.

We are not revealing the driver's name because he is not facing charges.
