SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — San Diego police were looking for the driver of a pickup truck that struck a child in the Encanto area.

A 3-year-old girl was struck by a westbound beige full-size pick-up truck as she ran onto Brooklyn Avenue near 61st Street around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to San Diego police Sgt. Michael Tansey. The driver did not stop afterward.
