A toddler was seriously injured in a rollover crash in north Colorado Springs Saturday afternoon, according to police.

Shortly before 1 p.m., the car the child was riding in was speeding south on Roller Coaster Road near Honey Run Way when it lost control and crossed into northbound lanes, Colorado Springs police said. 

Police said the driver jumped a curb and then over corrected, causing the car to flip back onto the street and land on its roof.
