BALTIMORE, Md. (WJZ)– An 11-year-old girl died in a car crash Saturday afternoon, according to Baltimore City Police.

At approximately 4:37 p.m., a vehicle traveling westbound at a high rate of speed in the 2800 block of Frederick Avenue, crossed over the double yellow line and collided with a SUV, injuring two 11-year-old girls, a 9-year-old girl and a 6-year-old boy.

One of the 11-year-old girls was ejected from the vehicle and died later at the hospital. It was determined the driver of the SUV was not at fault. The 26-year-old male driving at a high rate of speed didn’t posses a valid drivers license and was taken into custody.

The remaining three children are listed in critical condition. Investigators determined the 26-year-old male was impaired by alcohol and other contributing factors.

A 35-year-old male was in the passenger seat with the 26-year-old male. The passenger suffered injuries but walked out of the hospital before being discharged.
