BURKE COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

A 2-year-old was airlifted to the hospital Monday after a car crash in Burke County.

The wreck happened February 3, on Conley Road, which runs between Highways 70 and 64 in Morganton.

Troopers said the car the child was in went down a 15-foot embankment, hit a power pole, and hit a tree head on.  They said the 2-year-old was in a car seat, and that it probably saved her life.

Both the 2-year-old and the driver were taken to the hospital, according to troopers. The child had to be airlifted to Asheville.

Troopers are investigating how the crash happened.
