"We would ask again that anyone who was at the scene does still come forward, as what they know may be valuable to our ongoing investigation."

Witnesses say little Katniss had been playing on a scooter outside her home when the horror smash occurred.

In a heartbreaking Facebook post, her mum Tsvetelina, wrote: “God took her away too young and fragile.

“I don’t have strength and I don’t want to say goodbye to you, my star. How to let you go, my heart is bleeding, my soul is aching. Who will take care of you now up there my angel.

“I’m powerless, words are not enough, no consolation. Every day she told me, ‘I love you mom, you are the best mother and the most beautiful because you take care of me and do everything to make me happy’."

She continued: "First you became a star in the sky and cried that one day mom will be a star in the heaven and you will be left without me. Why did you let me cry mom, why Lord what sins do I pay Lord to take her away from me! Where are you mom, where did you go!

"You were so strong, healthy, smiling, always in the three races, why couldn't you fight for your life mom, your dad was calling you – 'open your eyes Katnis, dad is here, open them' – but you closed them forever! Rest in peace sweet treasure!

"May your path be bright so you are not afraid in the dark without mom and dad! Peace to your soul! Mama one day will come to you. Amen!"

The girl's family are currently being supported by specialist officers.

Floral tributes and teddies have since been laid for the youngster.
