STOCKTON - A 3 year old girl was killed in a collision on Highway 99 Friday afternoon, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Officials at the scene at the Hammer Lane exit said they believe a lane change issue may have been the cause of the fatal collision. Three children were ejected from the vehicle, a stone colored Isuzu SUV. A 3 year old girl suffered fatal injuries. A 10 year old boy was airlifted to UC Davis Medical Center, and a 9 year old girl was taken to San Joaquin General Hospital. An 18 month old infant also in the Isuzu was not ejected and suffered minor injuries, along with two adult passengers.

Officials say the occupants were traveling north from Atwater. A 59 year old female passenger who is believed to be the grandmother of the children was visiting from Mexico. There was no mention if the other party involved, two occupants in a Prius, were injured.

Although several carseats were found in the Isuzu, authorities say the children may not have been properly restrained.
