The three year-old girl involved in a car crash on Salt Spring Island has died.

RCMP on Saltspring say she died last night at BC Children's hospital in Vancouver. The girl's five year-old sister and her mother, who were also hurt in the crash, remain in hospital in Victoria. The husband and father is at their side now.

Around 2:30 Tuesday afternoon the mother and daughters were traveling in a Volkswagen Jetta on the Fulford-Ganges Road when they collided with a GMC van traveling the opposite direction. RCMP said initially it appears the rear of the car struck the front of the van, but the exact circumstances are still being looked into.

Everyone involved in the crash lives on Saltspring. Mounties say this is going to be a difficult time for that small Gulf Island community,
