AURORA, Colo. (KKTV) - A small child was hit and killed by a vehicle while unattended in a wedding venue parking lot.

Aurora police say the 3-year-old died at the scene.

The collision was reported at 7:30 Saturday night at the Victory Grange Hall on Tower Road in northeast Aurora. A growing memorial could be seen in the parking lot Sunday.

Investigators say the little girl was hit by a truck pulling a trailer. It's unclear how far away the parents were at the time.

Calling it a "tragic accident," investigators say the driver is not expected to face charges. Alcohol is not suspected in the crash.

The police department says the district attorney will determine whether the child's parents could be charged.
