4-year-old dies a week after being critically hurt in collision
BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) - A 4-year-old died a week after being seriously injured in a crash.
The two-vehicle wreck happened shortly before 2 p.m. Nov. 19 on Louisiana Highway 3 at Kingston Road south of Benton.
Louisiana State Police say their preliminary investigation shows a 2005 Toyota 4Runner being driven by 34-year-old Morgan Grantham, of Benton, was traveling west on Kingston Road and turning left onto LA 3 with a green signal.
Her vehicle was hit by a 2014 Ford F-150 that 48-year-old Shane Christopher DeMoss, of Plain Dealing, was driving south on LA 3.
The impact threw Grantham's daughter Katie from her booster seat, critically injuring the 4-year-old.
Authorities say the child, hospitalized since the collision, died Sunday afternoon as a result of her injuries.
Morgan Grantham, who was wearing a seat belt, suffered moderate injuries.
DeMoss, who also was wearing a seat belt, was not injured. He has been charged with running a red light.
Katie Grantham's parents chose to honor her by donating her organs for the benefit of others.
The crash remains under investigation.
