A 7-year-old girl was killed and her mother was critically injured

FULLERTON – A 7-year-old girl was killed and her mother was critically injured Monday ( February 13, 2017)  in a three-car crash in Fullerton, police said.  The crash was reported around 4:05 p.m. at the intersection of Kimberly and Acacia avenues, said Fullerton police Sgt. Jon Radus. A preliminary investigation said that a 2001 Hyundai Elantra was traveling west on Kimberly Avenue through the intersection with Acacia Avenue, when it was broadsided on the passenger side by a 2004 Nissan Altima, Radus said.
The impact of the collision caused the Nissan and the Hyundai to spin and strike a 2013 Toyota Tundra, which was at a stop sign at the intersection, Radus said.
The 7-year-old girl and her 42-year-old mother were in the back seat of the Hyundai, Radus said. The girl was in a car seat. Emergency personnel had to extract them from the vehicle.
The girl was pronounced dead at a hospital while her mother had surgery and was listed in critical condition Monday night, Radus said. The driver of the Hyundai and another passenger were treated for minor injuries. No one in the Nissan or Toyota were hurt.

It does not appear that alcohol or drugs were factors in the crash, which remains under investigation, Radus said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Fullerton Police Traffic Bureau at 714-738-5313. Those wishing to provide information anonymously can call Orange County Crime Stoppers at 1-855-TIP-OCCS or go to occrimestoppers.org.
