An 8-year-old girl was killed in a horrific crash in Manatee County on Sunday.

Officials said the accident occured east of I-75 on State Road 70, just west of Curtis Road around 4 p.m.

Troopers said a SUV lost control and drove over the median, hitting another car head on.

Sierra Proulx, 8, from Bradenton was killed in the accident, and four other adults were flown to Blake Medical Center in serious condition.

It took five helicopters to get everyone to the hospital.

Troopers temporarily shut down the road in both directions as rescuers tended to the injured and aircraft landed and departed.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation but troopers say speed may have been a factor.
