A 5-month-old girl was killed in a crash that left six other people injured Thursday evening in northwest suburban Barrington Hills.

Shortly before 7 p.m., a 2010 Dodge Journey and a 2001 Ford pickup collided at the intersection of Elgin Road and Silverstone Drive in Barrington Hills, according to a statement from Barrington Hills police.

A 5-month-old girl, who was a passenger in the Dodge, was taken to Sherman Hospital in Elgin, where she was later pronounced dead, police said. Two other children, passengers in the Dodge ages 8 and 13, were taken to St. Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates in serious condition.

The 32-year-old woman driving the Dodge was also taken to Sherman Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
