A 4-year-old Sapulpa girl died from injuries received in a two-car crash Friday evening. Troopers say Temperance Aimsworth was not in belted in when her mother's car was hit from behind on State Highway 33 in Creek County.

The wreck took place at 5:30 p.m. February 1, 2013, where the highway intersects with 193rd West Avenue. Michelle Aimsworth, 32, had slowed to turn left from eastbound Highway 33. Her Toyota Yaris was rear-ended by a Ford Ranger driven by 22-year-old Kellyville resident Mitchell James, according to a collision report by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Temperance was a passenger in the Yaris, and she was admitted in critical condition with head, trunk, arm and leg injuries that night. She passed away Saturday night just after 10 p.m.

Hannah Aimsworth, 9, was also in the Toyota and is said to be stable with head, trunk, arm and leg injuries. Michelle Aimsworth was uninjured.

Mitchell James was treated and released with minor injuries.

The investigating trooper's report says both drivers and Hannah Aimsworth were using seatbelts while the 4-year-old was not.
