A ONE-YEAR-OLD baby died at the Lautoka Hospital yesterday morning from injuries sustained when the vehicle the child was travelling in veered off the road in Lautoka.

The incident happened at 4.45pm on Tavakubu Rd in Lautoka on Tuesday.

Police spokeswoman Naina Ragigia said the baby was sitting in the back seat of the vehicle when the accident happened.

"A 33-year-old mother and her one-year-old child were thrown to the front as a result of the impact and the baby sustained serious injuries," she said.

"The four passengers, driver and baby were rushed to the Lautoka Hospital. They were all released after being cleared by medical personnel but the baby was admitted at the Intensive Care Unit.

"Unfortunately, she passed away in the early hours of this (yesterday) morning."
