3-year-old killed in St. Paul

Mai Moua, 3, had just arrived at a family gathering when she was fatally struck by a pick-up truck while crossing the street in St. Paul on Monday morning according to the Star Tribune. She slipped away from her mother and was crossing Rose Avenue around 9:30 that morning when the truck hit her. It is unclear whether or not speed was a factor in the accident. The man behind the wheel has been questioned and his identity has not been released. A neighbor living two doors down heard a thump and came running out to see what it was. He saw the girl lying in the street bleeding from her mouth. She was taken to Regions Hospital where she died. According to the Pioneer Press, she was a daddy’s girl.
