Mourners gathered in Pomona on Saturday night at a somber memorial for a man who was killed in a hit-and-run crash in Diamond Bar last week.

The crash injured six other people, including his three children and their mother. Family members said one of those children, his infant daughter Abby, died Friday night.

Abraham Franco, 29, died at the scene of the Nov. 26 collision on the eastbound 60 Freeway. He was honored a week later at a vigil that doubled as a fundraiser for the surviving members of his family.

Gilbert Franco wore a white T-shirt with the words "In Loving Memory" and his brother's likeness on the front.
