A 13-year-old girl has died just over a week after a horror crash that put five children in hospital. 

Police confirmed the death this morning, saying the girl died in Waikato Hospital yesterday. 

Her death comes just over a week after a horror crash in Matamata last Monday, December 27. 

Five children, aged 10–13 years old, suffered serious injuries in the single-vehicle crash. Three of the youngsters were taken to hospital in a critical condition.
