The parents of an East Texas little girl are speaking out after her tragic death.
Patricia and Israel Preciado are asking for prayers, after their 16-month-old was killed when a Chapel Hill ISD school bus ran over her.
Neighbors told KLTV that little Aria Liz Preciado followed her mother, Patricia, outside to pick up her sister from the school bus.
Witnesses said Patricia did not know her daughter had followed her out to the street. Neighbors said they ran to the bus and started yelling at the driver to stop. However, the driver pulled forward, killing Ariana.
Patricia and Israel said little Aria would have turned two-years-old in September.
"She's very smart. Each time she wakes up she is never cranky, with a smile, giggling. She was a happy child. I can't say nothing bad about her," said Aria's mother, Patricia Preciado.
