Holbrook Police Chief William Smith said the little girl had been playing outside of her home and was running out in the street.

She was rushed to South Shore Hospital, where she died.

The driver of the Comcast service truck that hit the girl was also hospitalized because he was so upset. He stopped after the crash and cooperated with police.
