A two-year-old girl struck by a vehicle in Burford on Christmas Day has died of her injuries.

Foster Butler died in hospital Jan. 1 following the collision, which took place in a driveway on Highway 53, County of Brant OPP said in a news release.

An online obituary for Butler says she passed away peacefully with family at her side at McMaster Children’s Hospital following a “tragic” accident on Christmas Day.

According to police, when they arrived they found a vehicle operated by a 28-year-old County of Brant man had struck the child.

Butler was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.

OPP traffic collision investigators were called to the scene to assist with the investigation.

According to the obituary, Foster Dawn Butler — a two-and-a-half-year-old Innerkip girl — was the “cherished daughter” of Katie Clark and Jason Butler as well as a “loving little sister” and “special granddaughter.”

She will be fondly remembered by her aunts, uncles and many, many “special cousins,” the obituary reads.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call County of Brant OPP at 1-888-310-1122.
