california-highway-patrolA 9-year-old girl who walked about a mile in Southern California to find help after surviving a crash says she was sad to hear that her father did not survive.

The girl told family members in the hospital on video she was cold and hurt.

The California Highway Patrol says the crash happened about 1 a.m. Sunday on a semi-rural stretch of the Sierra Highway in Acton.

The girl reportedly walked through rugged terrain and eventually wandered into a commuter rail station and told a security guard what had happened.

A coroner’s spokesman identified her father as 35-year-old Alejandro Renteria, of the North Hollywood section of Los Angeles.

The CHP is investigating whether alcohol played a role in the crash.
