A toddler died in a two-vehicle crash Friday morning. 

It happened around 9:50 a.m.  on Interstate 59 near Alabama 77. That's seven miles south of Reece City. 

State troopers say a 2010 Toyota Camry crossed the median and collided with a tractor-trailer.

Both the driver of the car and the toddler were ejected. State troopers say the driver was not using a seat belt and the child was not restrained. 

The driver 33-year-old Tenisha Rochae Timmons was taken to a hospital to be treated for her injuries. The toddler was pronounced dead at the scene. 

It's unclear if any charges will emerge from the crash as state troopers investigate.
