TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - A young child died in a two-vehicle, rollover crash on Tucson's east side Wednesday night, city police said.

Sgt. Kim Bay, spokeswoman for the Tucson Police Department, said the accident happened around 7:30 p.m. near the intersection of East Broadway Boulevard and North Harrison Road.

The TPD said a driver failed to stop at a red light and hit a vehicle being driven by the mother of 10-year-old Trelyn Thorns.

Trelyn was not wearing a seat belt and died from her injuries at a local hospital, according to the TPD. Trelyn's mother suffered minor injuries while the driver of the other vehicle was not injured.

Bay said several witnesses helped roll the vehicle over, remove Trelyn and render aid.

Neither driver was impaired at the time of the collision and the investigation is ongoing to determine if speed was a factor, according to the TPD.

No citations or charges have been issued at this time.
