LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- A woman is dead after a crash in the 5200 block of S. University Avenue Friday evening. 

According to Little Rock Police, the victim is 21-years-old and had been driving the car. 

Investigators say six people, including a child, were in the car at the time of the wreck. Officers are investigating why so many people were in the sedan which only had 5 seatbelts.

The passengers were taken to the hospital, but none had major injuries.

There was only one car involved in the accident. Authorities believe the driver was headed north on University when for some reason she over-corrected and lost control causing the car to flip and go off the road. 

University Avenue was closed for several hours, but has since reopened.
