PHOENIX – A 4-year-old boy died Wednesday night after the sports car he was riding in hit a tree in west Phoenix, authorities said.

The man driving the Chevrolet Corvette and an adult female passenger were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries after the crash, which occurred around 7:30 p.m. near 67th and Highland avenues, according to the Phoenix Police Department.

The car was heading southbound on 67th Avenue when it left the road and hit a tree, police said.

The occupants had to be extricated from the vehicle, which was heavily damaged.

The boy, who police said was sitting unrestrained in the woman’s lap, was pronounced dead after being taken to a hospital.

Police believe speed to be a factor in the wreck. The investigation is ongoing.
