UPDATE: The Park County Coroner names the Billings toddler who lost her life on I-90, west of Big Timber, shortly before 6:00 pm on Wednesday. He says she is Zaria Rey Santos.

Shortly thereafter, the car burst into flames.

All five people in the lead car were burned.

Three were transported to Livingston Memorial Hospital.

One was flown to Billings.

The incident is under investigation.
