COLTON, California (Jan. 25, 2013) – A 12-year-old Riverside girl died on Jan. 25, just one week after she was critically injured in a car crash that killed two others when the PT Cruiser they were traveling in was struck by driver Michael Dwayne Hughes, 29, of Moreno Valley.
The girl died at 4:42 p.m. on Friday at Riverside Community Hospital.
About 7 p.m. on Jan. 18, Allen was seated in the backseat of the vehicle driven by her friend’s grandmother, who along with her 13-year-old granddaughter also died at the scene of the crash in the 100 block of Main Street just north of Placentia La Colton in Colton.
The Colton Police Department is investigating the crash to determine what exactly happened. Hughes was arrested following the crash, but has yet to be charged with a crime, the Press Enterprise reported.
According to the Press Enterprise, the family of the girl has established an account at Union Bank to help pay for medical expenses and other costs in the aftermath of the accident. If you would like to help the family, please make the check payable to Jane Mitchell and write “Donation for Kylan” in the memo line. The account is at Union Bank at 315 East Alessandro Blvd., Riverside CA 92508. The account number is 003594482.
