Details are still coming in about the accident at 97th & Amsterdam this morning that has reportedly killed a little girl and critically injured an adult with her.

A reader who preferred to remain anonymous sent in the photo above of the Nissan Frontier SUV that struck the two victims.

As you can see from the damage, this was not a “low speed” incident.

Early reports indicate the teen driver of the SUV was fleeing police when he lost control of the car and hit the child (age 3 or 4) and a woman in her 50s, listed by various sources as the either the child’s mother, grandmother, or nanny.
