An 11-year-old girl is dead and two other children are in critical condition after a car crash Saturday afternoon in West Baltimore, police said.
A vehicle carrying the children was traveling westbound on Frederick Avenue "at a high rate of speed" shortly after 4:30 p.m. when it crossed the double yellow line and collided with an SUV, Det. Nicole Monroe said.
The 11-year-old girl was ejected from the vehicle, Monroe said. She was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where she was pronounced dead.
Three other children — an 11-year-old girl, a 9-year-old girl and a 6-year-old boy — were taken to area hospitals, where they remained in critical condition Sunday, Monroe said.
The driver of the SUV was not at fault, Monroe said.
