SALT LAKE CITY -- A 6-year-old girl has died of her injuries after she and her mother were hit by a car while crossing a Salt Lake City street.
A spokeswoman at Primary Children's Medical Center tells the Deseret News (http://bit.ly/xnvSee) family members had kept Ambrosia Amalatitoda on life support in hopes her injured mother would recover enough to say good-bye. But that never happened, and the child died Thursday.
Her organs are being donated.
Amalatitoda and her mother, Natalie Randall, were walking home from Whittier Elementary School on Wednesday afternoon when a car hit them in the crosswalk.
Witnesses say two other cars had stopped for the mother and daughter, but a third appeared to lose control and swerve. Police say they're still investigating.
The intersection does not have traffic lights.
