A little girl named Tanvir Kaur Choong was killed Wednesday night when she rode out into an alley on her plastic tricycle and hit an SUV.
The accident happened in the 13400-block of 83A Avenue in Newton, at about 8: 45 p.m. The two-year-old girl was flown by air ambulance to BC Children's Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Her father, Jagrajvir "Leo" Singh, is heartbroken.
"She's very lovely," the grieving dad said.
Police say the toddler had been playing with her five-year-old sister Amandeep on their driveway when she rolled out into the path of a
Saturn Vue, striking its left side. The driver had just left the family house only a few doors down, with his own little daughter in the backseat.
Other vehicles parked in the alley blocked his vision, police said. Charges have not been laid.
Tanvir's funeral service will take place at noon Friday at Riverside Funeral Home and Crematorium, at 7410 Hopcott Rd. in Delta, followed by a reception at 1: 30 p.m. at Singh Sabha Gurdwara at 8115 132nd St., Surrey.
