A 5-month-old girl was killed Sunday after she was thrown from a Porsche that lost control and fell 200 feet down an embankment near Palm Desert, officials said.

Armani Green of Rancho Mirage was not properly secured and was ejected from the Porsche, according to Officer Stephanie Hamilton of the California Highway Patrol in Indio. The baby was pronounced dead at the scene.

CHP officers are still investigating the crash, which occurred at 8:08 a.m. on Highway 74 east of Vista Point.

For unknown reasons:rolleyes:, the driver of the 2015 Porsche sports coupe lost control, struck the side of a mountain and collided with metal guardrail, Hamilton said.


The adults, Marcus Green, 51, of Thermal, who was the driver and Kristen Lauer, 22, of Rancho Mirage, were airlifted and transported to Desert Regional Meical Center. The woman suffered a serious back injury, but the man's injuries appeared to be less serious,
