A two-year-old Rohnert Park girl was killed and her mother was seriously injured when they were struck by a vehicle Wednesday evening, according to the Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety.

Two public safety officers who were conducting an unrelated traffic stop nearby witnessed the crash that occurred at Snyder Lane and Medical Center Driver at 5:39 p.m. and rushed to the victims' aid.

The two officers immediately began administering first aid and reported the crash, which involved a 1997 Honda driven by 18-year-old Rohnert Park woman Kaitlyn Dunaway.

Although police and fire units were called to the scene, they could not save the life of the two-year-old girl. The child's mother remained in intensive care Thursday evening, according to the department.

The cause of the collision is still under investigation.
