The toddler struck by a car and killed in Olathe Saturday was identified Monday as Peyton Michelle Barnett.

Police said the car’s driver, a 26-year-old man, remained at the scene and spoke to officers. He was not cited, but police said they were continuing to investigate.
Olathe Police Sgt. Bryan Hill said the girl either walked or ran into the street and into the path of the car.

A preliminary investigation indicated speeding was not a factor, Hill said.
Authorities asked anyone with information to call the Olathe Police Department at 913-971-7500 or 913-971-6950.
A GoFundMe page with Peyton’s photo has been set up to help the family.
