LAYTON, Utah — Police say a 2-year-old child has died following an accident in Layton on Monday.

The child's mother was also seriously injured in the accident on Highway 193 near Fort Lane just south of Hill Air Force Base.

Both the woman and child were both transported to the hospital in serious condition. However, the child later succumbed to their injuries and died at the hospital.

According to police, a car driven by the woman was headed eastbound when it was struck by a snow plow truck that was turning onto the highway.

The driver of the truck was not injured in the accident, but charges may be filed for their failure to yield.
