A woman died and a toddler was injured after they either fell or were pushed from a moving truck onto a Santa Ana street, officials said on Friday.

The woman was taken to the hospital with head injuries about 8 p.m. Thursday from the area of Edinger Avenue and Raitt Street, Santa Ana police said. She died later Friday morning.

A toddler, either 1 or 2 years old, was taken to a hospital with cuts and bruises. The child remained hospitalized Friday morning.

The woman in her 20s or 30s was found lying in the street next to the girl, a Santa Ana police official told NBC4.

Police were seeking the driver of a dark-colored pickup truck that drove east.
