Young girl dies from injuries sustained in car crash with 2 Metro Transit buses

Tributes have been paid to Jordyn Owens.

A 6-year-old girl has died from the injuries she suffered in a car crash with two buses as she was being taken to school.

Jordyn Owens was left in a critical condition following the collision in Richfield on Monday, Feb. 26.

But according to an update on a GoFundMe page set up for her family, she passed away at 6:39 p.m. on Thursday.

Her father Fred Owens, who was driving, and her siblings Justin, 14, and Jada, 11, were also injured in the crash but are "on the road to recovery."

Fred Owens, 62, paid tribute to his daughter on Facebook, saying: "Jordyn you will always have a place in my heart. RIP Daddy's girl. Love you forever."

The Star Tribune reports Owens was driving his children to school Monday when he turned left from West 73rd Street onto northbound Nicollet Avenue.

He was struck by a southbound Route 18 Metro Transit bus as he turned, with the impact sending the car into a northbound Route 554 bus parked on the other side of Nicollet.
