CINCINNATI (WEWS/CNN) — Police said a 4-year-old girl has died of injuries suffered in a New Year's Day street racing crash in Cincinnati.

Sgt. Mike Machenheimer said the 4-year-old was rushed to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, where she later died. 

The girl was wearing a seat belt but was not in a car seat, police said. 

The drivers could face several charges. 

Police are still investigating.
