A 4-month-old girl was killed when the car she was traveling in struck a commercial truck and flipped over on Interstate 15 in Oak Hills, the California Highway Patrol said Monday.
The collision occurred shortly before 1 p.m. Sunday, south of Oak Hill Road in San Bernardino County, the CHP said in a statement. Officers responding to the crash said the child was in a 2003 gray Honda Accord that was being driven by a 52-year-old woman.

CHP officers said the child was declared dead at the scene. The other passengers in the car were taken to a hospital for moderate to major injuries.
The driver of the commercial truck did not suffer injuries.
