Isabelle was rushed to hospital, but died yesterday morning, with her grief-stricken family paying an emotional tribute to the young schoolgirl.
A family statement said: "Isabelle was a loving daughter, granddaughter, great granddaughter and sister.
"She meant a lot to everyone and lived life to the full; she loved art, dancing, singing and learning.
"She was learning to play the guitar and was a unique individual who loved to set her own trends.
"The best daughter anyone could ever have. Please respect our family at this sad time and allow us the privacy to grieve."
The 53-year-old driver of the car, who remained at the scene, was treated for minor injuries.
A spokesman for West Midlands Police said he would be spoken to "in due course".
Police appealed for help to establish what happened leading to Isabelle's death, which one officer said had left the force "numb".
Detective Sergeant Paul Hughes said: "She was just 11 years old with her whole life in front of her, but this has been tragically taken away.
