An 8 year-old girl struck by a vehicle while crossing the street to get on the school bus in Stone Mountain early Friday morning has passed away from injuries sustained in the crash.

Authorities say Tluang Tha Men died following a crash that happened near the intersection of Rays Road and Central Drive. The girl's mother, later identified as 35 year-old Dawt Chin Sung, was carrying her across the road when they were both struck.

Sung sustained moderate injuries but is expected to be okay.

The driver of the vehicle, 38-year-old Ejigayheu Tsegaye, stayed on the scene until police arrived. Charges are pending at this time.
