LOS ANGELES - An 8-year-old girl who was critically injured when an SUV slammed into a bus stop in South Los Angeles on Thanksgiving, killing the girl's mother, has died, police said Tuesday.
The child and her mother, later identified as Alma Aragon, were walking when an SUV driven by an allegedly drunk driver went onto the sidewalk and struck them.
One car, speeding southbound down the road, collided with another vehicle that was exiting the parking lot of a nearby liquor store and allegedly attempting a U-turn, authorities said.
The department said another male victim was also injured in the crash. All three victims were taken to a regional trauma center by LAFD paramedics.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but authorities said that they believe alcohol was "absolutely" a factor with "at least one of the drivers."
Officials confirmed that the speeding driver was unlicensed. That person's identity has not yet been released by authorities.
One of the drivers involved in the crash remains in critical condition while the second driver was treated and released at the scene. The LAPD said both drivers face criminal charges in the deadly crash.
