ORLANDO, Fla. - Family and friends gathered Saturday evening to remember a 10-year-old Orlando girl who died after being hit by an OUC truck.

Marisol Gonzalez was walking along Pershing Avenue in Orlando on December 2 when an OUC truck was hit by another vehicle. The collision caused the truck to be pushed onto the sidewalk, striking Gonzalez. The 10-year-old died at the hospital on Wednesday.

"Marisol is my best friend and she liked so much the animals," friend Chelsea Nieves said.

Family members and friends of the little girl gathered for a memorial service at a church on Pershing Avenue, not far from the crash scene, Saturday evening.

"My daughter and her, they come from Puerto Rico and they learned English in ESOL," parent Carol Paulino said.

WFTV was there on Friday when Gonzalez's parents announced they were donating her organs.

The Florida Highway Patrol said the crash remains under investigation and charges are pending.
