WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — An infant has been killed and five others injured in a car crash in South Florida.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says a 3-month-old girl died after the 1999 Honda she was riding in was rear-ended by another vehicle in West Palm Beach on Saturday.

The collision pushed the vehicle into another lane, where it collided with a 1995 Mitsubishi.

The driver of the Honda and a 7-year-old boy were in satisfactory condition on Sunday.

Three other people were taken to area hospitals.

Deputies say drugs or alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.
