A 4-year-old girl died in a head-on crash on state Route 62 in Licking County on Feb. 28.

Lailah Scott was a passenger in the Ford pickup truck driven by her father, 32-year-old Danny L. Scott Jr. of Gambier, when the eastbound truck collided with a westbound Dodge pickup truck driven by Ronald L. Goldsberry, according to Ohio State Highway Patrol Lt. Kevin D. Miller.

The crash occurred at 11:40 a.m. near state Route 13 in the village of Utica.

Lailah died at the scene, the patrol said.

Both Danny Scott and Goldsberry, 63, of Croton were taken to Licking Memorial Hospital in Newark with injuries described as not life-threatening.

State Route 62 was closed for about three hours, Miller said.
