The toddler was taken to a local hospital in a life-threatening condition and died at around 1 a.m.
No charges have been laid at this time and the Major Collision Bureau is now investigating the incident.
"We're just trying to provide as much support as we can to the family and putting out as little information as possible right now because we don't want to re-traumatize them now that no charges are necessarily going to be laid, so it's just a very, very tragic accident," said police.
