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.

    This is the SECOND fatality at this intersection in the past 3 months. A woman died after blowing the red and plowing into 4 cars on a green back in November or so. It's a T-intersection that might be the problem. Drive SAFE everyone…SLOW DOWN!

    Stop cutting people off, you considered and arrogant drivers. Stop tail gating other drivers. And specially those who drive trucks who feel superior to other drivers who drive sedans. You drivers of suv and trucks, stop being arrogant pr**cks and respect the other drivers.

    The tailgate speeding morons out there don't even realize how dangerous they are driving. It's a bad habit & the cars they drive that do such things, obviously the driver is responsible for their actions, those cars feel different then other class of cars. It's a combination of not having respect for others on the road. and speeding and tailgating & just being a moron.

    Lets be honest, the majority of drivers, including those that commented, Can't drive well to begin with. This is a tragedy that possibly couldn't been avoided if the drivers were better equipped.

    Taigating and cutting people off has been the norm in Ca. for MANY years now. Everywhere. People are just too much in a hurry and don't give a crap. They are in a hurry driving, a DEADLY MACHINE, and when it's a SUV, it's all balls out for alot of the ass*oles. We know it and they know it. When someone tails me, I brake to get them to back off, and most times they get the clue.

    For those of you who don't have a clue what the laws of driving are, GET THE F*ING DMV handbook AND READ IT!!
