    A man was killed when he was thrown from this vehicle early Wednesday morning.

    An infant is hospitalized and her father is dead after an early-morning rollover crash in Grand Prairie, police say.

    Police said the driver of a pickup truck was ejected from his vehicle and died Wednesday morning after first colliding with an SUV and then losing control of his vehicle.

    The driver of the truck was not wearing a seat belt, police said.

    A child secured in a car seat escaped serious injury, but was transported to Children's Medical Center in Dallas in good condition.  Wednesday afternoon, NBC 5 learned the child is going to be fine and suffered only bruises.  She'll be kept overnight at the hospital for observation before being released.

    The driver of the SUV was not injured.

    The names of those involved in the crash have not yet been released.

    The crash, which took place along the 1200-block of 3rd Street at about 8 a.m., is under investigation.
