MARSHALL CO., MS (WMC) - A child was killed and three other children were injured after vehicle rolled over in Marshall County on Tuesday morning.

The accident happened on Hernando Road at Highway 309.

A man who lives near the scene of the crash heard what happened and ran outside.

"I first looked out the window and I seen it was an accident and so I rushed out and then I came on down," said the neighbor, who did not want to be identified.

The neighbor said the vehicle hit a tree and rolled several times.

"The little baby [child who was ejected from the car] was not saying anything at first and then when I came back with the towel, she had started breathing," he said. "Praying to God that the little baby would be OK. I was asking God to just save her because she was, like, in critical condition."

The child was taken to Le Bonheur Children's Hospital by helicopter, but later died.

"It's sad, because I have grand kids, you know? And I just pray that everybody would just put their kids in restraints like they should," the neighbor said.

The Marshall County sheriff initially told WMC5 that the vehicle that rolled was a school bus, but investigators confirmed it was a car.
