RALEIGH, N.C. - The North Carolina State Highway Patrol says a 1-year-old girl is among four people killed in a single-car accident.

A news release from the patrol says a car driven by 27-year-old Jacques Jamal Dickens of Tarboro ran off N.C. Highway 125 on Tuesday morning, hit a ditch, a highway sign and several trees.

The patrol says Dickens and two passengers in the car were ejected from the vehicle.

Troopers identified the child as London McDowell, who they say was being held by a passenger in the front seat. Investigators say that passenger was wearing their seat belt, but Dickens and the other two passengers ejected were not.
