CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Police say a 4-month old girl being held in the backseat of a car has died after the vehicle crashed in north Charlotte.

Police say the wreck happened shortly before 3 p.m. Tuesday when a car was speeding and tried to pass another vehicle. Detective Kevin Allred says the car ran off the other side of the road, hit a utility pole and overturned.

Police say the infant was thrown from the car. Her name has not been released.

The driver was taken to a Charlotte hospital. Four other people in the car were not seriously hurt.

Allred says 21-year-old Thabiti Ashim Pierre-Louis is being charged with felony death by motor vehicle, reckless driving, possession of marijuana, child neglect, driving while intoxicated, child seat violation and over-crowding a vehicle.
