Toddler Killed, Father Critical in Orange Bus Stop Crash

ORANGE, Calif. (KTLA) — A 3-year-old girl is dead and her father is in critical condition Saturday night after an SUV plowed into a bus stop at Taft Avenue and Tustin Street.

Investigators say a 29-year-old man driving the SUV was heading southbound on Tustin Street when another car cut him off and caused him to lose control of his vehicle.

The SUV careened into a bus stop where the victims were waiting.

The girl’s mother was also at the bus stop but was unhurt.

The father is expected to survive.

The driver was screened for alcohol, but police said they don’t believe alcohol played a factor.
