A one-year-old girl was killed when her aunt, who was carrying her, was struck by a car in Witpoortjie in Roodepoort on Wednesday morning, paramedics said.

The woman was trying to cross Corlett Drive at the intersection with Java Street when she was hit by a Volkswagen Polo, ER24 spokeswoman Vanessa Jackson said.

It appeared that the baby was flung from the woman’s arms when the car struck her.┬áThe child died before paramedics arrived on the scene. Her aunt was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

The driver was not injured.
