NEW ORLEANS- Police say a 3-year-old girl was killed when a motorcycle struck her while she was watching fireworks in eastern New Orleans.

Officer Shereese Harper says witnesses told police the motorcycle driver stopped after the accident Monday night, turned and looked at the toddler, then fled the scene.

The child was later identified as Asia Williams.

Witnesses told a New Orleans television station that the little girl was standing next to a parked car when the motorcycle hit her. The impact sent her into the air and she landed in the middle of the street.

Police are looking for the driver of the blue and white Suzuki GSXR 1000 involved in the accident.
