PAPILLION, Neb. (AP) - A 7-year-old girl has died after being injured in a Sarpy County collision that occurred a week ago with her big sister at the wheel.

Nebraska Medical Center spokesman Taylor Wilson said Tuesday that Madelyne Hughes died around 11 p.m. Monday. The little girl was taken to the Omaha hospital on Jan. 13, after an accident on U.S. Highway 75.

Sarpy County authorities say 17-year-old Taylor Hughes and Madelyne were in a northbound sport utility vehicle that was struck by a southbound van when Taylor Hughes tried to turn west onto Platteview Road south of Bellevue.

The van driver was hospitalized with a broken ankle. Taylor Hughes was treated for an arm injury. She was cited for failing to yield.
