FORT BEND COUNTY, Texas — An 8-year-old girl who was critically injured in a hit-and-run earlier this week has died, the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office said on Saturday.
She was hit by a driver who ran a stop sign and did not stop to help her, the sheriff's office said.
The girl had been in critical condition since the crash happened Thursday at Bissonnet and Hodges Bend near Sugar Land.
Angela Smith, 39, has been charged with one count of felony failure to stop and render aid in an accident involving death and one count of felony failure to stop and render aid in an accident involving serious bodily injury.
Deputies said Smith admitted to hitting something, but kept going because she has a suspended license.
Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls said the girl was with two other children when she was struck by Smith's car.
