An 8-year-old girl died Sunday after being hit by a car as she attempted to cross Corlett Avenue near East 124th Street.

Khadijah Abdullah had entered Corlett Avenue from its north curb in front of a parked car, but was struck when she tried to cross it at a non-crossing location, according to Cleveland police.

EMS transported Abdullah to University Hospitals Case Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.
A 2011 Chevrolet Impala traveling westbound on Corlett Avenue struck the girl, police said. The man driving the car was not arrested or cited.
Police say the accident investigation unit is following up.
