CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago police say an 11-month-old girl was ejected from an SUV during a collision with a semi-tractor trailer.

Police spokesman John Mirabelli says the girl was taken by ambulance to Lurie Children's Hospital in stable condition.

He says the driver of the semi-truck ran a red light and slammed into the side of the SUV around 2 a.m. Tuesday in the River North area of the city.

Mirabelli says a woman in the backseat of the SUV was holding the child at the time of the crash.

The driver of that vehicle was cited for not using an infant child seat and not having a valid license. The driver of the truck was cited for running a red light.

Mirabelli says there's no indication alcohol was a factor.
