Toledo (9-11-21) An 8-year-old girl, Kyla Brown, of Siegel Court, was killed Saturday morning when the car in which she was riding crashed into a rising drawspan on the Craig Memorial Bridge.
Brown was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash reported at 9:58 a.m., while the car’s driver, Christina Price (37) of the 4700 block of Violet Road, was taken to Mercy Health St. Vincent Medical Center for treatment of injuries.
Price, according to the Toledo Police Department, was westbound on the bridge when the 2015 Ford Focus she drove crashed through the drawbridge’s lowered warning gates and then struck the west half of the drawbridge as it was being raised. The girl was riding in the car’s back seat.
The bridge remained closed to all traffic for nearly six hours.
A police investigation continues.
