An 11-year-old girl was killed following a street race crash in Florida. According to witnesses Friday, a Dodge Charger and a Kia Optima were racing on the U.S. Route 192 when the 19-year-old man driving the Dodge crashed into a Toyota after failing to slow down.

Troopers said the Charger hit a speed limit sign while the Toyota crashed into a median. The 35-year-old woman driving the vehicle, along with a 23-year-old woman in the passenger seat, were both reportedly in serious condition.

Additionally, an 11-year-old girl, whose identity has not been disclosed, died at the hospital.

“The back of the Toyota 4 is intruded past where the little girl was sitting in the backseat,” Kim Montes of Florida Highway Patrol stated. “She never had a chance to survive. We are seeing people get hurt and now we have an eleven-year-old girl dead on Easter weekend and that family is forever changed and they did nothing wrong.”

Troopers said an investigation into the crash remained ongoing and charges were pending.
