Thursday night officers witnessed a drug deal in the Lake View Terrace area of the San Fernando Valley.
When officers moved in, the three suspects in the car drove off. The driver eventually lost control and crashed into the outside wall of a home.
A six-year old girl was standing nearby and pinned against the wall by the car. She died at the hospital.
Two passengers were taken into custody at the scene. The driver of the car ran away, but was captured a short time later.
