BELLEVUE, Wash. (AP) - Investigators have determined the likely cause of a crash in Bellevue that killed a 2-year-old girl who was in a stroller on the sidewalk.

Bellevue Police said Wednesday that the 43-year-old male driver of a Nissan Sentra failed to yield the right of way when he turned left in front of an oncoming Dodge Durango. The SUV crashed into the smaller car and pushed it onto the sidewalk, striking the stroller as well as the child’s 25-year-old mother.

Officer Seth Tyler says the driver of the Nissan agreed to a blood draw, and drug or alcohol impairment isn’t suspected in the crash.

He says the Bellevue city prosecutor will make a decision in coming days on whether to file criminal charges.

Investigators are attempting recreate the events leading up to the crash.
