Georgia (Atlanta): Sukmaya Mongar, 7, who was hit by a speedy car at 2:30 pm local time, passed away within an hour in hospital today.

Dilip Dahal, who was an eyewitness in the hospital, said Mongar met the accident while returning from the office of her resettlement agency, International Rescue Committee (IRC). She was with her parents and elder brother.

The IRC resettled the Mongar family in Carriage Oaks II, Clarkston, Georgia, Atlanta  just two weeks ago.

Both the car and driver are under police investigation. The family is yet to receive the dead body from the hospital.

Dahal informed Bhutan News Service that the family moved to the U.S. from Timai camp.

    ALL OUR PRAYERS AND SORRY TO HEAR AND HOPE THE UNFORTUNATE FAMILY WILL RECEIVE SUPPORT FROM ALL OF US.
