A young girl died after being ejected from a vehicle that hit a tree near the intersection of The Alameda and Harford Road by Clifton Park Wednesday night, said fire officials in a statement.

At about 6:30 p.m. paramedics responded to the single-vehicle crash in the 2700 block of The Alameda, said Chief Kevin Cartwright, a fire spokesman. The girl was found unconscious and non-responsive, he said, and she was pronounced dead at an area hospital.

An adult and a second child were also injured and are being treated at an area hospital, Cartwright said.

The cause of the accident has not been determined and police are investigating, he said.
