ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque police is requesting a search warrant for a vehicle involved in a crash that killed a 4-year-old girl.

KOAT-TV reports (https://bit.ly/26I9y50) that police are seeking to examine the car the girl was riding in to see if she was properly restrained.

If there is evidence she wasn’t, the girl’s parents could be charged with child endangerment.

Investigators say the car she was in turned onto an on-ramp for I-40 in front of an oncoming car Friday.

The vehicles collided, causing the child to be ejected from the rear seat.



She was transported to the hospital in critical condition but died from her injuries.

Police do not believe speed or alcohol were factors in the crash.
