LOS ANGELES (AP) – A 9-year-old girl who walked about a mile in Southern California to find help after surviving a crash says she was sad to hear that her father did not survive.
KCBS-TV reports the girl told family members in the hospital on video she was cold and hurt.
The California Highway Patrol says the crash happened about 1 a.m. Sunday on a semi-rural stretch of the Sierra Highway in Acton.
KCAL-TV reports the girl walked through rugged terrain and eventually wandered into a commuter rail station and told a security guard what had happened.
A coroner’s spokesman identified her father as 35-year-old Alejandro Renteria, of the North Hollywood section of Los Angeles.
KCAL reports the CHP is investigating whether alcohol played a role in the crash.
