SANTA FE SPRINGS (CBSLA.com) — A prayer vigil was held Monday for a 7-year-old girl fatally struck by a vehicle at an indoor car show Sunday night.
Family members say Mia Chapman was attending a customized auto show where cars are designed to hop. She was reportedly struck and killed by the driver of a vehicle believed to be exiting the warehouse after the show ended.
Her parents were reportedly too distraught to attend the vigil, but family and friends in the Lowrider community gathered outside of the warehouse.
The accident happened around 7:30 p.m. in the 10200 block of Freeman Avenue in Santa Fe Springs, the Whittier Police Department said.
A spokesman for the Whittier Police Department confirmed the show took place inside the warehouse, which houses a hydraulic auto body shop known for customizing cars.
