LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) — The death toll climbed to eight in a crash tied to a police pursuit in central California, authorities said Sunday.

An 8-year-old injured in Saturday’s crash died at a hospital that night, said John Maxfield of the California Highway Patrol.

The collision occurred when police tried to stop a Dodge Neon over a traffic infraction in Dinuba, said CHP officer Felipe Martinez. Dinuba is about 30 miles southeast of Fresno.

The Neon fled and ran a stop sign before colliding with a GMC Sierra pickup, Martinez said.

Four of the five children in the pickup — ages 1, 3, 4 and 7 — were ejected and died at the scene, Martinez said. Three adults in the Neon also were killed.

The fifth child, the 8-year-old, was airlifted to a hospital before dying, Maxfield said.

Two more adults were taken to hospitals. Their conditions were not available Sunday. The collision was under investigation.
