A candle light vigil was held Tuesday night for a six year-old girl killed in a car crash.

Loved ones gathered around a tree on Edmore Street on the city's east side. That's where a single car crash killed 6-year-old Myiah Tisdale and injured her one-year-old brother.

Their mother, Antaneisha Tisdale, was behind the wheel.

Neighbors say she was speeding, lost control, and hit a tree.

The accident happened after Tisdale celebrated her 25th birthday.

Family members say Tisdale is unconscious and does not yet know she's lost her daughter.

Myiah's father is also in the hospital battling a long term illness. His family fears losing a daughter will prove too much for him to bear.
