Miami-Dade County police say a 6-year-old girl died after being hit by a taxi when she fell off a luggage cart and into a commercial lane of traffic at the Miami International Airport.

Police say the girl was rushed to a hospital, where she died Friday night.

They say the girl was riding on top of several pieces of luggage on the cart, which was being pushed by a relative.

Police say the girl, who name was not immediately released, was traveling to Miami with her family.

Police say it is too early in the investigation to tell if any charges will be filed.

No additional information was immediately available.
