Police described Gill’s vehicle as a silver Camaro, which was seen heading South on Highway 165 from Armand Street. According to the Monroe Police Department, an officer located Gill’s vehicle and attempted to initiate a traffic stop. After she noticed the police, Gill immediately fled from the officer driving at a high rate of speed for approximately one mile.

Officers reported that Gill drove on the shoulder of the road, ran the red light at Highway 165 South and Renwick Street and ultimately crashed at the intersection of Highway 165 South and Renwick Street.

According to officers, they immediately took the child to a hospital where she later died.

The Monroe Police Department believed that the child was not properly restrained in the car before the crash. At least two other people suffered non-life-threatening injuries, who were passengers in a separate vehicle that Gill struck at the intersection.
