6-year-old Milwaukee girl killed in street race

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A 6-year-old Milwaukee girl died when the car she was riding in during an illegal street race collided with another car on the city's northwest side.

Milwaukee police say Christiana C. Beal was not wearing a seat belt when the Chevrolet Lumina she was riding in crashed into a Chrysler Pacifica on Sunday night.

The Chrysler Pacifica was apparently not part of the race, but made a turn as the Lumina and another vehicle were racing.

Four adults in the Lumina were seriously injured. The driver, a 39-year-old man related to the girl, was hospitalized and in police custody Monday.

The 37-year-old female driver of the Pacifica was injured. Her injuries are not life-threatening.

Police are still looking for the other vehicle involved in the street race. Charges may be filed.
