MEADE, Kan. (KAKE) -

A 2-year-old boy has died following a rollover crash in southwest Kansas early Sunday morning.

The accident happened at around 1 a.m. west of K-23 on County Road V in Meade County. The Kansas Highway Patrol reports a Chevy Suburban was heading west when the driver lost control on a curve. The SUV went into a ditch and rolled.

Felipe James Tomas, of Friona, Texas, was taken to Meade District Hospital where he later died. The Patrol reports he was sitting in a car seat but was not buckled up. 

Two others in the vehicle, 34-year-old Vicente Tomas-Tino and 23-year-old Isabel Solis-Gomez, were taken to the hospital for treatment of possible injuries. They were not wearing seat belts.

The Highway Patrol's online crash log did not list a driver.
