MARYLAND CITY, Maryland — A child was killed, and two men were critically injured in a crash Monday evening on Baltimore Washington Parkway, officials said.

In the Northbound Baltimore Washington Parkway firefighters responded to a crash near Route 198 just before 11 p.m. A 911 caller at the scene told firefighters that she believed a vehicle had run into the median strip and down an embankment, officials said. The vehicle was not visible from the roadway.

After investigating, firefighters found a heavily damaged car down the embankment. It was wedged between trees and on its side with two young men still trapped inside, officials said.

Firefighters also found the body of a 6-year-old girl in nearby brush. She had been ejected from the vehicle. The paramedics declared her deceased at the scene, officials said. There is no word yet as to whether or not she was wearing her seatbelt.
