A toddler has died after being involved in a hit and run in Gastonia

Riley Bradley, the 21-month-old died several days after the accident. Her family posted on Facebook that "Riley is with Jesus now."

Police say the toddler wandered out into the road and was hit by a car. Police believe Donna Jane Hayes was driving a maroon Hyundai Elantra, hit the child and left the scene. They found Hayes not too far away and waited to file charges after finding out Riley's condition. 

Riley's grandfather Rick Bradley tells Fox 46's Robin Kanady, "We're really hurting." He says Riley was so special and that the family had been "praying hard for a miracle."
