A child is dead after a crash in Oxford last week.

A toddler has died after a head-on collision on Route 188/Quaker Farms Road in Oxford on Wednesday.

Five people were injured in the crash around 12:30 p.m. on Sept. 11 when a car driven by Garrett L. Baker, 30, of Waterbury, crossed over the center line and crashed into an oncoming Subaru Outback, according to police.

Baker received neck abrasions and his passenger, Nicole Bahr, 28, also of Waterbury, suffered arm injuries, authorities said.

The passengers in the Subaru were more seriously injured. Driver Amy Williams, 32, of Oxford, received lacerations to both legs, according to police.

She was traveling with two children, a 3-year-old and a 9-month-old.

The toddler, Lily Brooks, was in critical condition with severe neck injuries and has since died, police said.

It's not clear whether 9-month-old Sebastian Williams was injured. He was transported to Waterbury Hospital for an evaluation.

Both children were riding in car seats.

Route 188 was closed in both directions near Hogsback Road while an accident reconstruction team investigated the crash.

Police said both cars were totaled.
