An 8-year-old child died and a driver was arrested on Labor Day when an SUV crossed into oncoming traffic and hit two other vehicles on a highway in Norman.

Norman Police say around 2:50 p.m. Monday, the driver of a Ford Escape, later identified as 29-year-old Kimberly Wenthold, was traveling east on State Highway 9 near 168th Avenue S.E. when the vehicle crossed the center of the road, causing a collision with a Ford Explorer and a Dodge Ram pickup hauling a boat.

Six people were hurt in the crash. Eight-year-old Cadence Gordon, a passenger in the Ford Explorer, was flown from the scene by an air ambulance to a hospital, but died from her injuries.
