Emilio Mejia witnessed the moments of the crash.

"The guy wasn't thinking... He came speeding and went through the stop," Mejia said in Spanish. "He took a woman and the child. The little girl was 6 or 7 years old."

Mejia said the pickup truck was black.

"The woman had been hit pretty bad in the stomach and intestines. She had hit her head on the ground when she fell. She was in critical condition. She was screaming [the child]... on because of the pain of being hit, but also because she was calling out for her mother who was in a drastic situation.
