TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The 5-year-old girl hit by a car while crossing the street last night, July 19th, has died.

According to Pima County Chief Deputy Chris Nanos, the girl was pronounced deceased at the hospital at approximately 12:30 p.m. on July 20, 2014. No one has been charged, but the investigation is ongoing.

The girl was hit around 7 p.m. Saturday night near Orange Grove Road and Skyline Dr. When deputies arrived, they learned the 5-year-old girl and her 7-year-old brother were crossing the street. The location of their parents was not immediately known. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor.

The 5-year-old girl hit by a car while crossing the street last night, July 19th, has died.

According to Pima County Chief Deputy Chris Nanos, the girl was pronounced deceased at the hospital at approximately 12:30 p.m. on July 20, 2014. No one has been charged, but the investigation is ongoing.

The girl was hit around 7 p.m. Saturday night near Orange Grove Road and Skyline Dr. When deputies arrived, they learned the 5-year-old girl and her 7-year-old brother were crossing the street. The location of their parents was not immediately known. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor.

An affidavit says the driver who hit five year old Nahla Reed stayed on the scene and flagged down a passerby. They were in front of their house. But getting outside the development was not difficult.

The driver said he didn't see the little girl until he hit her. The affidavit said that the girl appeared to have crossed at the intersection where permitted. But there is no painted crosswalk. She died the next day.

She was with her seven year old brother who said she was on the line on the side of the road when she was hit.

The affidavit said that Nahla and her brother were playing in front of their house, about four hundred feet away from orange grove road. Their father said she was chasing her brother as he rode a scooter back and forth.

In the affidavit the father said that he went inside to check on dinner and when he came back out his son and deputies told him what happened. But the paperwork added that his son told Child Protective Services that his father was inside playing video games. The children's mother was upstairs reading on her laptop.

Detectives seized computers, a game console, and cell phones.

Pima County Sheriff's Office said that the investigation is not over, and whether any charges will be filed by the office is uncertain.
