Investigating officers said the child apparently looked one way and waited for a car to pass, th darted into the path of the car driven by Raymond J. Ford, 44, of Niantic as he approached from the opposite direction. They said he was driving slowly and his ear bumped the little girl knocking her to the pavement.
