A woman was killed and a seven-month-old girl injured Saturday in a vehicle crash in Ashburn on the South Side.

Kimberly Johnson, 31, was driving at a high rate of speed about 7 a.m. in the 3100 block of West 79th Street when her 2013 Chevy Captiva struck a concrete support beam, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Both Johnson and a seven-month-old girl were rushed to Christ Hospital after the crash, police said. Johnson was pronounced dead, and the baby is in good condition.

An autopsy conducted Sunday ruled Johnson’s death an accident stemming from blunt force injuries in a motor vehicle collision.

The family of Johnson’s baby are raising funds for the child.

“This is just the worse thing when you built a lot with someone,” the baby’s father, Allen Oliver-Hall said in the post. “Please stop drinking and driving”
