DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Police say a 3-month-old girl died when she was ejected from a car during a crash on Interstate 85 in North Carolina.

News outlets report the Durham Police Department says the crash occurred in the northbound lanes around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday when a car driven by 39-year-old Shanelle Johnson, of Raleigh, tried to merge into the far-left lane from the far-right lane.

Johnson tried to pass another car, but hit its left rear corner, causing her car to overturn several times before coming to rest upright in the far-left lane.

A 4-year-old in the car was hospitalized with critical injuries.
