Mount Holly woman charged in crash that killed girl, 9

A Mount Holly woman has been charged with death by auto in connection with a crash last month that killed a 9-year-old girl in Burlington Township.

Andrea Rodriguez-Pazmino, 21, allegedly failed to stop at a red light on Route 541 at Cadillac Road the night of June 22.

Prosecutors said she crashed into an SUV carrying 9-year-old Jasleen Kaur and four family members. The SUV rolled over onto its roof and smashed into another vehicle before coming to a stop, according to investigators.

Jasleen Kaur died about an hour later at Lourdes Medical Center of Burlington County, while the SUV’s four other occupants were treated for minor injuries.

Both Rodriguez-Pazmino and a teenage relative who was riding in her car also suffered minor injuries, investigators said.

Rodriguez-Pazmino was arrested Monday and released after posting 10 percent of $75,000 bail.

The case will be referred to a Burlington County Grand Jury to determine whether an indictment will be filed, prosecutors said.
