RAVENNA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -

A western Michigan sheriff says a 24-year-old mother was distracted by two young children in the back seat when she went through a stop sign and her vehicle was struck by another vehicle, killing her 2-year-old daughter.

The Muskegon Chronicle reports Muskegon County Sheriff Dean Roesler said Sara Curtis did not see the stop sign Saturday because she was distracted by the two girls. Two-year-old Alayna Curtis died in the crash.

Curtis and another daughter were treated and released from a hospital.  The driver of the other vehicle was not injured.

The collision occurred in Ravenna Township, about 18 miles east of Muskegon.
