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.
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.
