SLIDELL - Authorities are trying to determine how a 17-month-old girl wound up in a road where she was struck and killed by a truck.

NOLA.com ' The Times-Picayune reports that the girl was struck Monday afternoon in St. Tammany Parish, while the toddler was visiting her grandmother's home in the Slidell area.
