PHOENIX -- A child who was ejected in a rollover accident Tuesday afternoon has died, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office said.

Five people were injured Tuesday after an SUV driven by 36-year-old Jessica Roberds rolled over near Saguaro Lake.

Colin Williams with Rural Metro said the crash happened on just south of the Saguaro Lake Marina turnoff about 4 p.m.

Roberds was driving her four children when the SUV rolled multiple times after she lost control. She and three children were hospitalized as a precaution.

The 9-year-old boy was ejected during the crash. He was killed when the vehicle rolled over him.

The SUV landed on its roof.

No other vehicles were involved.
