OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma City police have identified a girl who died after being hit by a car Wednesday afternoon.

According to police, the crash happened at N.W. 10th and Tabor Drive. Zara Noah, 8, died at the scene after she was hit by a car while trying to cross the road with two other children.

All three children live in that area. Police said they decided to try to go to the park on the north side of N.W. 10th.  Eastbound traffic on N.W. 10th was stopped due to congestion at Portland Ave.  The children walked north in between stopped traffic of the eastbound lanes of N.W. 10th.  They continued north, trying to run across the westbound lanes of N.W. 10th.   

A 2001 Chrysler Sebring driven by 43-year-old Wendell Morrison was westbound in the outside lane of N.W. 10th, when police said the children ran in front of the car. Morrison said he did not see the children due to the eastbound cars blocking his view.  

One child, a 7-year-old girl, crossed the roadway safely. A 15-year-old boy was struck by the front passenger side the car. He was transported to OU Medical Center, suffering from non-life-threatening injuries to his lower leg and head.

Noah was struck by the front center of the car and went underneath it.  She died at the scene from her injuries. The Medical Examiner's office ruled her manner of death "accident."

Police said Morrison did not show signs of impairment and speed was not a factor. He was released at the scene.  

The family has set up a GoFundMe page to help with funeral expenses for Zara.
