WASHBURN, Wis. (AP) -- A 2-year-old girl has died following a rollover crash in Bayfield County that seriously injured three other children.

The Wisconsin State Patrol Tuesday identified the toddler as Mariah Gordon, of Bayfield. Three additional children, ages 4, 6 and 15, suffered life-threatening injuries and are hospitalized in Duluth, Minn.

The patrol says a 23-year-old woman was driving a Chevy Blazer that went into a ditch and overturned on Highway 13 near Washburn Monday afternoon.

WDIO-TV says none of the occupants were wearing a seat belt and all were thrown from the vehicle.
