OAKLAND -- A 2-year-old girl who died Friday afternoon after she was hit by a car in East Oakland has been identified.
Anijah Walker, of Oakland, was with a family member when she was hit by an Infiniti sedan driven by a 35-year-old Oakland resident. The motorist had turned into the parking lot of Arroyo Viejo Park on Olive Street and apparently did not see the child.
The driver, whose name was not released, remained at the scene and is cooperating with police. Police said it appears it was an accident and alcohol was not a factor in the crash. The incident took place about 3:39 p.m. Friday and the Alameda County Coroner's Officer released the name Monday.
Anyone with information is asked to call Officer Barry Ko at 510-777-8523.
