An off-duty police officer witnessed the accident. Miller said a 2009 Toyota Camry was westbound on 26th Street. After it proceeded past Sertoma Avenue it veered off the roadway, driving through a chain link fence before it struck a gooseneck trailer in a construction site. Miller said the crash ended several hundred feet away from the road.

The child, whose name has not been released, died from injuries sustained in the crash.
