Posted: Updated:

A one year old from Demopolis died and two others were taken to the hospital after a single car wreck in Hale County.

At approximately 5:45 PM Tuesday, 1-year-old James McGilberry of Demopolis was killed in a single vehicle crash on Alabama 69  five miles south of Greensboro.

The child was a passenger in a 1998 Toyota 4 Runner that left the roadway and struck a tree.

McGilberry was not properly restrained in a child-restraint system and was pronounced dead at the scene. The vehicle was driven by Kylie M. Smyly, of Demopolis. Both the driver and another passenger, Chloe Smyly, 8, also of Demopolis, were injured in the crash and transported to Birmingham area hospitals.

Although the circumstances surrounding the crash are still under investigation, Alabama State Troopers say speed was a factor.
