At around 3:40 p.m. two vehicles collided on Amargosa near Kings Ranch Road. As the Mazda MPV that the child was riding with her mother, aunt and two of her other siblings was exiting the shopping center parking lot it was sideswiped by a black Nissan Altima.

I said multiple times I can’t feel my arm. Only the ambulance guy looked at my arm but after everything was over with,” said Camarena.  “They dropped me off back at the scene and then he asked if I was injured.”

The toddler was airlifted to Loma Linda University with non-life-threatening injuries as a precaution.
