A toddler has died after being hit by a car in Bradenton.
Amir Stubbs, who was only 23 months old, was waiting by a family car with his siblings when he walked away and fell into the path of a vehicle driven by a Bradenton woman in the parking lot of an apartment building, according to investigators.
The crash happened just before 8 a.m. Tuesday at the Citrus Meadows Apartment Complex near 21st Street East and 15th Avenue East.
Police say speed was not a factor, and they don't think the woman was impaired in any way.
Emergency crews attempted life-saving measures and took the boy to Manatee Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
An investigation is underway.
