A small and tight-knit Central Coast community is in mourning, following yesterday's tragic accident at Rocky Point, where a little girl lost her life while crossing the road.
The five year old was fatally hit by a truck, moments after stepping off the school bus around 3.40pm.
It's understood her mother and some classmates witnessed the incident.
A Police spokeswoman says "it appears the bus may've been obscuring the child from the truck driver."
