The child’s 6-year-old sister, Kathleen Lopez, also died from injuries suffered in the Monday morning crash.

The California Highway Patrol said a 31-year-old woman later identified as Nan Zhang was driving a 2019 Subaru northbound on Old Road when she veered into the southbound lanes, struck a curb, traffic sign and SoCal Edison box. The vehicle then entered the intersection of Pico Canyon Road and hit another traffic signal, a tree and a traffic signal box. 

The vehicle came to a rest on the northwest corner of Pico Canyon Road and Old Road and then caught fire. Zhang and the children were pulled from the vehicle by good Samaritans.
