A toddler is dead after the car she was riding in lost control and flipped several times before barely missing a mobile home.
Highway patrol troopers say the driver of the car, 27 year old Willie Judge Jr. of Greenville lost control of the vehicle, before it flipped several times in front of Joseph Nicholson's home on Highway 43 south in Pitt County Saturday night.
Troopers say the other three adults in the car had broken bones and bruises , but one-and-a-half year old Alana Judge didn't make it. Now the highway patrol is looking into what caused the crash.
Sergeant Ernie Coleman with the Highway Patrol says, "The accident report indicated the child was in a child restraint seat, however, you have to remember this vehicle took a hard ride. It took off the road and flipped several times and it went off the road at approximately 65 miles-per-hours, so you're talking force of great degree here and child of one-and-a-half most of the time can't take that kind of pressure."
The Highway Patrol says no charges have been filed, since the driver may have suffered a medical emergency before the crash.
