MIRAMAR, Fla. (AP) – An 8-year-old Florida girl was killed during a crash on her way to her first day of school.
Miramar police spokeswoman Tania Rues says the child’s mother was driving to Somerset Academy, a charter school in Miramar, on Monday when she apparently ran a red light and was hit by a pickup truck.
Rues says Sumaiya Zahin was ejected from the minivan, which then rolled over on her.
She wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. A toddler riding in a car seat was not harmed.
Police said the girl’s mother was taken to a hospital in fair condition. No further details were immediately available.
