MONTCALM COUNTY, Mich. (WILX) - A nurse pulled a mother and her child from a burning vehicle Monday morning.

Police responded to a two-car head-on crash on Sidney Road in Evergreen Township on May 22 just before 6:30 a.m.

Investigators said a 37-year-old male from Crystal was driving eastbound, crossed the centerline and struck a Subaru head-on. The Subaru was driven by a 29-year-old female with her 6-year-old daughter, also from Crystal.

Officials said a nurse drove to the crash scene immediately following and removed the mother and her child from the burning car.

The mother and child were transported to the hospital for treatment. The mother is in critical condition. The 6-year-old, however, died from her injuries.

“The loss of a child is a tremendous heartache, and our thoughts and condolences are extended to the family and friends,” said Michigan State Police.

The male driver was transported to the hospital with serious injuries.

Officials said the crash remains under investigation.
