(INDIANAPOLIS) - Indianapolis police say two children from Somalia were struck by a car whose driver apparently fell asleep, crossed lanes and struck their bicycle.

A 9-year-old girl died, and her 14-year-old brother was critically injured.

The accident happened a few doors from the seven-member immigrant family's home. They came to the United States through a church-based program that helps relocate refugees from their war-torn country.

No charges have been filed against the driver, 42-year-old Margaret Graves.
