CRESCENT CITY, Fla. -- A child is dead after a car crash in Putnam County.

The Florida Highway Patrol was called to the intersection of Clifton Road and U.S. 17 about 9 a.m. Sunday after an accident involving two vehicles.        

A 74-year-old man driving a Ford Explorer hit a Dodge Caravan. The Dodge went off the shoulder of the road and spun around before stopping. 

FHP has not released many details but said a child believed to be 3 years old died in the crash. FHP says the child was not in a car seat.

FHP says five children were in the vehicle, and two of them were ejected. 

The other victims, including children, were taken to Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach. 

The 74-year-old was not hurt in the crash. 

Charges are pending. Investigators say speed was not a factor.
