DALLAS (AP) — One of four children hospitalized last week in North Texas after falling from atop a moving car has died of her injuries.
The Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office says 12-year-old Octavia Watkins died Wednesday of blunt force trauma to the head. Crowley police tell the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that she was removed from life support.
The girl and three other children were wearing wet clothes from a day at a Crowley pool when they rode on the vehicle's trunk and hood June 17. The other children were treated for injuries and later released from a hospital.
The driver of the vehicle, 39-year-old Kisha Young, has been charged with drunken driving and other offenses.
The 12-year-old was the daughter of a woman riding as a passenger in the car.
