The girl, whom authorities said was 3 or 4 years old, ran from the library into the parking lot, with her mother calling for her to stop, at about 10:57 a.m., according to Suffolk spokeswoman Diana Klink. The girl ran into the passenger side of a Nissan Armada that was driving slowly through the lot, Klink stated in a press release.

The child was assessed and treated at the library by Suffolk Fire and Rescue personnel and was taken by ambulance to the Norfolk hospital.
