The Dallas County Sheriff’s Department says a 7-year-old girl has been killed after a crash that ejected her into floodwaters.

Sheriff’s spokesman Raul Reyna tells the Dallas Morning News ( ) that the girl, her mother, a man and three other children were in a vehicle that crossed one or two lanes of U.S. Highway 175, hit an embankment and flipped over into the water Saturday evening.

Reyna said the 7-year-old and a 9-year-old were ejected, and that fire department rescuers were able to save the older child. The younger child was carried away in the water, and Reyna confirmed about 8:30 p.m. that crews had found her body.

Reyna said the other children were hospitalized in stable condition. The adults were also hospitalized but their conditions were not known.
