A 1-year-old girl injured in a four-car crash on northbound U.S. 287 in Broomfield on Sunday died after she was taken off life support Tuesday, according to a family friend.

The girl, Nedra Pincus, and her mother, Michele Pincus, were in town from Los Angeles visiting Greg Petras and Mary Kate Karr-Petras and were driving a rented white Kia to Rock Creek Farm pumpkin patch when the accident happened around 2 p.m. Sunday, said Greg Petras.

Nedra sustained multiple skull fractures and was bleeding in the brain after the crash, Petras said. She was airlifted to The Children’s Hospital, according to Broomfield police.

Her condition did not improve at the hospital and her mother on Tuesday removed her from life support, Greg Petras said. She died at 11 a.m. Tuesday.

The four-car accident closed the northbound lanes of U.S. 287 near Miramonte on Sunday and backed up traffic, which was already busy because of visitors to the Rock Creek Farm pumpkin patch.

Broomfield Police spokeswoman Joleen Reefe confirmed Nedra’s death on Wednesday, but said she did not have more information about the accident because it is still under investigation.
