A 3-year-old girl was killed in a two-vehicle wreck on Bruckner Boulevard, Port Morris, Bronx on Saturday morning.

A garbage truck and a 2010 Chevy Malibu sedan crashed around 10 a.m.

Both vehicles were traveling north when the Chevy swerved in front of the truck to avoid a pothole says the New York City Police Department.

Police said the truck rear-ended the sedan, which pushed it into a metal pillar supporting the Bruckner Expressway in the 300 block of Bruckner Boulevard.

A 52-year-old woman was driving the sedan and a 52-year-old man was in the front passenger seat. There was also a 27-year-old woman in the rear seat.

Police said the child was correctly fastened into the rear seat of the vehicle.

All 4 victims were taken to Lincoln Hospital where the toddler was pronounced dead. The adults are all in stable condition.

The identifications of the victims are still pending notification of family.
