Posted July 23, 2013
Cary, N.C. — A 20-month-old girl who was critically injured two weeks ago in a three-car crash in Cary has died, officials said Tuesday.
Chloe Rene Fox was riding in a 2006 Toyota with her parents on U.S. Highway 64 near the Edinburgh Drive intersection when the car was hit from behind as it slowed for traffic by a 1999 Ford, police said.
The collision forced the Foxes' car into the back of a 2011 Chevrolet, and the Toyota was eventually hit on the side by the Ford, police said.
Chloe was in a child car seat, but police said it appeared that the seat wasn't installed properly.
She was taken to WakeMed in Cary for treatment. Cary officials didn't say exactly when she died, but they said police are now consulting with Wake County prosecutors on whether addition charges should be filed against Elizabeth Blake Brzezinski, the driver of the Ford.
Brzezinski, 20, of 117 Milley Brook Court in Cary, was initially charged with failure to reduce speed.
