A month-old girl who was ejected from an SUV during a crash in Studio City Monday has passed away, officials said.
The crash occurred around 1:30 p.m. in northbound lanes of the 101 Freeway near Tujunga Avenue.
According to the California Highway Patrol, 67-year-old man driving a tractor trailer was merging into the #5 lane from the right shoulder when it collided with a Land Rover carrying a man, woman, and the month-old girl.
The impact caused the driver of the Land Rover to lose control, and the vehicle rolled multiple times before crashing into the concrete sound wall on the freeway.
The baby, who was initially listed in ‘grave’ condition, later succumbed to her injuries. The other occupants of the Land Rover were also hospitalized. All three are from Sylmar, according to the CHP report.
It is not clear if either driver will face charges.
The child’s name was not immediately released.
