LIVONIA, Mich. - An 11-year-old girl remains in critical condition after being ejected from a car during a crash Sunday afternoon on I-275 in Livonia.

Michigan State Police said the girl and two others were in a Ford Taurus going southbound near Six Mile Road when the car lost control, slid into the median and hit a catch fence.

All three of the victims were thrown from the car, but the 11-year-old was then reportedly hit by a car that was going northbound.

This crash happened in front of a trooper who was clearing from another nearby accident.

The trooper was able to move the child to safety on the side of the road.

The 11-year-old was taken to Botsford Hospital then transported via life flight to the University of Michigan for treatment.

The other passengers have been treated and released.

Police said preliminary investigation indicates that none of the backseat passengers were wearing seat belts.
