LAS VEGAS (AP) — The mother of a 12-year-old Las Vegas girl killed when she was struck by a car while trick-or-treating says she never got to say goodbye.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/rxJLzy ) that Faith Love was already dead by the time her mother, Rocquell Love, arrived at the hospital after the Halloween night car crash.

The 41-year-old driver, Justin Caramanica, was arrested on a felony drunken driving charge and is being held at the Clark County jail.

Rocquell Love says she hadn't planned on taking her daughter trick-or-treating that night. But she decided to let her daughter go out with her cousins and an aunt after the girl's 6-year-old brother came down sick.

The girl was dressed as a Native American princess when she was struck by Caramanica's 2009 Mazda RX-8.
