COON RAPIDS, Minn. (WCCO) — A 3-year-old girl was killed after being ejected from a vehicle after a single-car rollover crash in Anoka County.
The accident occurred around 3:20 p.m. Wednesday on the ramp from Highway 10 to Foley Boulevard. Authorities say the vehicle was traveling west on the ramp when it went off the road and rolled.
Police say they are investigating whether or not the girl was restrained in the vehicle but say an accident like this simply shouldn’t have happened.
The young girl was riding with her mother and cousin, and all three were airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center, where the 3-year-old later died.
The other two victims in the crash were said to have suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
