The crash was reported just before 5 p.m. at the intersection of Wilson Avenue and Olive Street (map), the Tahnee Lightfoot of the Glendale Police Department said.
The child, identified as Violeta Khachaturyan, reportedly ran into westbound traffic and was hit by a "white or beige colored sedan" that left the scene after striking the child.
Police said she was thrown 60 feet into the back end of another parked vehicle.
The child, who was with some family members when she was struck, was taken to Glendale Adventist Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead at 5:34 p.m., Lightfoot said.
