A 5-year-old girl dressed like a princess was struck and killed by a vehicle while trick-or-treating on Pepperdine Court near Decatur on Halloween, WSB-TV reports.

Officials said Autumn Mack was with a group of people at the time, including her parents. She reportedly attempted to run across the road, and was struck by a minivan.

Sandra Young, a witness of the event, said, "They were at my house trick-or-treating when one little girl called another little girl across the street, and my sister was leaving, and the little girl ran out in front of her."

Det. Lorentz Armstrong with the DeKalb County Police Department said the driver was neither speeding or under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

There are currently no charges against the driver, according to investigators.
