Posted: Updated:

SUNNYSIDE, Wash. -- A 3-year-old from Sunnyside was killed Sunday when the car she was travelling in failed to stop at a stop sign.

It all happened at the intersection of Outlook Road and Maple Grove Road. 18-year-old Nichole Estrada was driving north on Maple Grove Road in a 1996 Nissan Sentra when she failed to stop. That is when a Dodge Pickup hit her on the passenger side.

The 3-year-old was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the Sentra. She died at the scene. Troopers are investigating whether alcohol was involved.
