In a Facebook post, Rhiana's father Roy Daniel said police told him witnesses saw his daughter fly 50 to 70 feet in the air after being hit by the car while she was in the crosswalk.

He said the driver first claimed he was never in the crosswalk and the girl ran out in front of him. He said police let the 45-year-old driver leave in his car after being interviewed.

Daniel is wondering why the driver was not charged after Rhiana died the next day. He said he has no animosity towards the driver but fears for his other two children's safety.

Lt. Daniel Duncan with the Corvallis Police Department said the case is still under investigation and no one has been charged at this point.
