RAMONA, Calif. – Residents of Ramona gathered Sunday for a candlelight vigil to remember a 5-year-old girl who died when her mother accidently backed into her.

Bella Noble was remembered for her bright spirit.

Her Capturefamily said just last week they were with Noble visiting a pumpkin patch Harbour Farm & Vineyards’ Pumpkin Patch off Highway 67 to pick out Halloween decorations for the house.

On Thursday, Noble’s mother did not see her when she was backing up the family van and hit her, according to California Highway Patrol. Not realizing her daughter was behind her, Noble’s mother rolled over her a second time.

Investigators do not suspect anything malicious occurred.

Friends and family came together Sunday evening at the pumpkin patch and lit candles in honor of the young girl.

“It’s a small community and everybody sticks together,” said family friend Deborah Craig.

Correction: The video report indicates the accident occurred Friday at the Noble’s home, but it occurred Thursday at a family friend’s home.

    Not that it matters in the grand scheme of things, but I'm disappointed in the inaccurate reporting in this article and video. It happened on Thursday evening, not Friday, and was at a friends house, not the Noble's home.

    A benefit concert is being planned, and information will be posted on BellaBenefit.com once solidified.
