Six-Year-Old Girl Dies in a Horrific Car Accident
A six-year-old girl dies in a horrific car accident that happened after a driver lost control over her car, struck several traffic signals and signs, and collided into a tree. In the end, the vehicle burst into flames.
The fatal accident happened in Stevenson Ranch, authorities informed. The California Highway Patrol said that everything took place at the Old Road and Pico Canyon Road in the Santa Clarita Valley about 9:40 a.m.
The driver, a thirty-one-year-old woman from Bakersfield, was driving her 2019 Subaru north on the Old Road. The car was moving at high speed when it hit into a traffic signal, a sign, and a curb, CHP informed. Witnesses also confirmed that the vehicle was speeding.
The woman’s car then crossed the Pico Canyon Road, crashed another traffic signal, a tree, and a signal box. Finally, the vehicle stopped at the northwest corner of the intersection and burst in flames, investigators informed.
People came to help and managed to pull out the woman and two passengers, little girls, aged six and two. All three were transported to Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital. The older girl did not manage to survive the crash and the flames. For now, the relationship between the driver and the two girls remains unknown.
The Los Angeles County coroner’s office is not releasing the names of the girls, because next of kin was not notified.
