Guam - Police confirm the 4-year-old who died in a car crash last night in Barrigada was only wearing the lap strap of the seatbelt and was not in a car/booster seat as required by law. The crash could have been avoided had the driver of the Yaris stopped and pulled over as police were trying to conduct a traffic stop because he was caught speeding.

Police confirm the driver pulled in as if he was going to pull over and then sped out going in excess of 100 mph before running the red light at the tri-intersection and colliding with the Tucson.

As police were investigating they discovered the four year old on the floorboard of the backseat and officers were able to revive her but she passed away this morning at Naval Hospital. The driver of the Yaris remains in critical condition
