Mother and Daughter Killed in Accident

Saadia Ghaffar, a mother of three, and her youngest child, Zoya, both from Frisco, were killed in a car accident last month when their vehicle was hit by an oncoming SUV, according to the police.

The 38-year-old mother and her 2-year-old daughter were taken to different hospitals, where they both passed away from their injuries.

Ghaffar and her child were riding in their minivan when an SUV traveling in the opposite direction crossed the center line and struck their vehicle. The 21-year-old SUV driver, on the other hand, was treated for injuries sustained in the accident and released.

Our thoughts are with the victim’s family and friends after this terrible tragedy.
