A brief moment, that’s all it takes to sled down a driveway for a young child at play.

That same moment will squeeze at the hearts of a Jupiter family for their entire lives.

A young girl died last week as she was playing in the snow in Chesterfield County, Virginia.

Police there say the girl was sledding down a driveway when she got into the path of a truck.

The girl died from her injuries at an area hospital in Chesterfield County.

Authorities did not release her name, but sources for the CBS affiliate in the area confirmed she was Jupiter, Florida.

The Chesterfield County Police Department said the driver stayed at the scene, the 2600 block of Mistwood Forest Drive, and was driving a Toyota Tacoma.

Authorities continue to investigate the crash.
