HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

A young mother and her 1-year-old child were involved in a rollover crash Monday night on Firetower Rd.

We just learned Alisha Davenport, 21, died at Garden Park Medical Center about an hour after the crash, according to Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove.

The crash happened around 8:45 p.m. near Vidalia Rd. when the car flipped in a sharp curve and left the roadway.

Hargrove said the 1-year-old was strapped in a car seat and was not harmed, but was taken to the hospital to be checked out after the crash.

The car the mother and child were in was the only vehicle involved in the crash.
