DECATUR, GA (CBS46) -

Yolanda Jones had to do perhaps the most difficult thing a parent can do when she had to tell her dying child not to worry.

"There are no words for it. It can't describe it," Jones said. "I just kept telling her everything is going to be fine and we love you."

Jones sat in the road with her 5-year-old daughter, Autumn, after she was struck by a van while trick or treating.

Jones struggled to speak through her tears, but she and Autumn's father, Carlos Mack, wanted tell CBS Atlanta about their special little girl.

"She was a beautiful, loving, happy baby. She did everything. She loved everybody," Jones said.

Jones took her children to Pepperdine Road on Halloween night.

One of Jones' daughters called out to Autumn across the street.

"She started running and I heard a boom," Jones said.

 Just as Autumn darted into the road a van pulled out and hit her.

"Seeing my baby on the ground, holding her hand. She's a fighter and she fought. I squeezed her hand and she squeezed mine and I held her and kissed her," Jones said.

Police called the incident a terrible accident and do not expect to file charges against the driver.

Jones never imagined she would ever have to endure such excruciating emotional pain.

"I don't know how I'm going to do this. Who buries a 5-year-old?" Jones asked.
