AURORA, Ill. (AP) -- Authorities say a 3-year-old suburban Chicago girl whose mother was rushing her to the hospital during an asthma attack died after their car crashed.
Aurora police spokesman Dan Ferrelli says Tuesday autopsy results for 3-year-old Kayla Bell show the cause of death was due to a medical issue, not the crash. He says there were no signs of foul play.
The girl was pronounced dead Monday after arriving at Aurora's Rush-Copley Medical Center, where her mother, Carla Bell, was trying to take her for treatment. Authorities say Bell was driving the child to the hospital because she was having trouble breathing.
Police say their vehicle sideswiped another car as Carla Bell tried to pass it. Bell was hospitalized for head injuries.
There were no other injuries.
No citations were issued.
