VALHALLA, N.Y. (AP) - Police in Westchester County say a toddler struck by a minivan last week has died.

Ramapo police say 18-month-old Judy Danzinger suffered a severe head injury on Friday after a minivan struck her on Beckett Court in Chestnut Ridge.

The little girl died Saturday morning at Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla.

Neighbors told the Journal News (https://lohud.us/1uwvNpM ) that the minivan was traveling less than 5 mph as the driver was attempting to turn around on the dead-end street. The driver apparently was unaware that the toddler was behind her as she started to back up.

Police say the driver was not charged.
