MCSO: Baby girl killed in Goodyear crash wasn't properly restrained

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office said the single-vehicle crash happened Sunday afternoon on Perryville Road.

GOODYEAR, Ariz. — A 9-month-old baby girl has died and her father is in the hospital following a crash in Goodyear, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

The single-vehicle crash happened Sunday afternoon on Perryville Road near Van Buren Street, officials said. The car left the roadway and struck a pole in the area.

The baby and father were both ejected from the vehicle during the rollover collision.

The 30-year-old father was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. He is reportedly still in critical condition Monday morning.

"Evidence suggests neither party was wearing any restraints," a representative with the sheriff's office said.

MCSO said no car seat was located in the car. Impairment is not suspected of being a relevant factor in causing the collision.

The child's family is raising money to help with funeral costs. You can donate to their GoFundMe here.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
