FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami/AP) — A four-year-old girl who died when the car she was in slammed into a utility pole was not strapped into a car seat.

The driver of a 2013 Volkswagen Jetta carrying Majesty Folson was trying to make a U-turn in front of oncoming vehicles when it was hit by a Nissan Pathfinder, which couldn’t avoid the crash. It hit the passenger side of the Jetta, sending it into the utility pole.

Three other people in the car were injured in the Tuesday night crash near Fort Lauderdale.

All four people in the Jetta were critically injured and the child later died of her injuries.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office said no one in the car was wearing a seatbelt and a car seat wasn’t found.
