KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City police said Monday that a 6-year-old girl died from her injuries weeks after a Dec. 21 wreck at US 40 Highway and Phelps Road.

The girl, identified as Naveyah Hayes, was running from the south side of the road to the north side of the road when she was struck by a car.

The driver, who remained on the scene, was not impaired and did not see Naveyah until it was too late.

Naveyah was transported to a local hospital, where she died Friday, police said.
