A mother and her two-year-old daughter were killed Sunday in a head-on collision on Preston Road just south of Meadow Hill Lane in Frisco.

Frisco Police Department spokesman Ofc. Greg Barnett said Saadia Ghaffar, 38, was traveling southbound on Preston Road at 8:31 p.m. in a 2004 Toyota Sienna. Cindy Castillo, 21, was in a 2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac headed northbound. 

Barnett said the preliminary investigation found the Explorer veered over the median and into oncoming traffic, colliding head-on with Ghaffar's vehicle. The 38-year-old died at Centennial Medical Center. Zoya Ghaffar, her two year old daughter, died at Children's Hospital of Dallas. 

A 10-year-old girl who hasn't been identified was treated at Children's and released. Castillo was also treated and released from Medical Center of Plano. Barnett said the department has not filed any charges and said alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the crash. 

The collision remains under investigation.
