Baltimore Police have identified a 2-year-old girl who 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, according to fire officials.

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.

She was identified as Janiya Nicole Ludd, city police spokesman Agent Donny Moses said Thursday morning.

An adult and a second child were injured and are being treated at an area hospital, Cartwright said. The other child, a 7-month-old, was in a car seat, Moses said. He could not say whether Janiya had been in a car seat.

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