A young child was killed and another was flown to the hospital with critical injuries after a two-vehicle crash, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The names and ages of the children have not been released by the Florida Highway Patrol, which says it is withholding them until its investigation is complete.
The crash occurred in Coral Springs in Broward County.
A female driving a 2017 Ford Escape collided with a 2005 Honda Accord driven by another female at the intersection of Coral Springs and Cooper City, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. There also was a female passenger in the Accord and two children. Both children were in car seats.
The crash pushed the Accord into a pole and a utility box. One child died and the other was flown to Broward County Medical Center with life-threatening injuries, the Florida Highway Patrol and officials says.
The driver of the Escape was treated and released at a hospital for minor injuries. The police did not say if the two other females in the Accord were injured.
