DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - A 4-year-old girl has been seriously injured in a two-vehicle crash in eastern Iowa.

The Scott County sheriff’s office says deputies and other first responders arrived Tuesday morning to a crash site on Highway 61 near Davenport. It involved a Jeep and a semitrailer.

Authorities say the Jeep was trying to turn right at an intersection when it was struck in the rear by the semitrailer. The Jeep went into a ditch and struck two steel posts.

One of the steel posts came through the Jeep’s window, injuring the girl. She was airlifted to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. Her condition is unavailable.

The driver of the semitrailer has been cited in the crash.
