The 3-year-old passenger in a Jan. 12 car crash died Wednesday at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis.

Mississippi Highway Patrol said Spencer Harlow, the father of Anniston Jade Harlow, 3, was traveling south on Highway 25 in a 2006 Mazda when his vehicle collided head-on with a northbound 2010 Ford Mustang driven by Treviaris Key, 18, of Aberdeen. The accident happened around 6 p.m. in Itawamba County.

Both Harlow, 24, of Saltillo, and Key were transported to North Mississippi Medical Center with moderate injuries while the 3-year-old passenger in Harlow’s vehicle was airlifted to NMMC and then transported to Le Bonheur with life-threatening injuries.

Troopers said the child did not appear to be properly fastened in a child restraint.

The accident is still under investigation.
