A four-year-old Modesto girl was killed yesterday after she was hit by a car near her Paradise Road home. That car then sped off.
The Highway Patrol says four-year-old Ariday Almanza was struck as she walked along the roadway edge with a stroller. The impact sent the little girl flying some 50 yards, landing in her front yard. CHP says the car had crossed over the lanes onto the shoulder of the road hitting the child. A witness says two or three Hispanic men were in the car, described as a dark blue or black Honda Civic. The suspects are still at large.
