(WMC-TV) - A two-year-old girl was hit and killed by her mother's car Friday, according to police.

"It hurts real bad," said grandmother Stephanie Jones.

Jones' granddaughter, A-Niyah Farmer, just celebrated her second birthday at a big party Memorial Day.

"She just enjoyed herself. She was beside herself, really enjoyed. She was so happy, happy baby," said Jones.

Sardis police said the toddler was hit by her mother's car in the driveway behind the house they lived in. Investigators are not sure who was driving the car.

"Right now, there are a lot of questions that we're asking and trying to get answers to. We're still investigating everything that happened, trying to find out exactly what went on," said Sardis police chief John Deal.

A-Niyah's father was at work when he received the heart wrenching call about his daughter. He, too, wants to know what happened.

He was told one possibility is that it could have been an 11-year-old child driving the car.

"Someone stole the mother's keys while the mother was in the house asleep, ran over the kid, my baby, A-Niyah. [The driver] ran off, and they don't know who the driver was," said the father, Mario Farmer.

Farmer said 10 people live in the house. He believes someone knows.

"I want justice done for my daughter, cause she was too young, and she didn't deserve nothing like this," said Farmer.

Police are still interviewing witnesses and at this point do not know who was driving the car.
