LAWRENCEVILLE, Va. (AP) — Virginia authorities are investigating a two-vehicle crash over the weekend that left a 4-month-old dead.
Virginia State Police say in a statement that on Saturday, a 2000 Mitsubishi collided with a 2016 Honda on State Route 644 in Brunswick County.
State Police say a 4-month-old child in the Honda was seated in an infant seat but was not secured in the seat, and the seat wasn’t rear-facing as required by law. State Police say the child was taken to the hospital where she died.
State Police say the Honda’s driver, 31-year-old Stephanie Hawkins of Brodnax, was charged with failure to secure a child under 8 years old. State Police say the driver of the Mitsubishi, 34-year-old Chavioleyette Lambert of LaCrosse, was charged with failure to stop at a stop sign.
