The SUV skidded across the roadway and hit the Eight Mile bridge at the border of Harper Woods and St. Clair Shores. The child was buckled into a auto safety seat.

A 1-year-old buckled into what police described as an ill-fitting auto seat was the only survivor after an SUV crashed into a bridge near Detroit early Monday, killing the vehicle's other four occupants, including the child's mother. The AP and Free-Press report the Buick SUV was driving at high speeds in Harper Woods when the driver tried to pass another vehicle, lost control, careened across the lanes, and ended up striking a bridge.

Alesias son, who turned 1 on Saturday, is the only survivor and was the only person with a seatbelt on, although police say he was improperly belted into his seat.
