Police say a Michigan woman was killed when an out-of-control vehicle crashed into her during an attack drag racing eventbut she was able to pull her 2-year-old daughter to safety in the seconds before the crash.

The crash occurred Sunday at the Silver Lake State Park Sand Dunes in western Oceana County, about 275 miles (430 kilometers) northwest of Detroit, MLive.com reported.

Police said the driver of a modified Jeep CJ lost control, veered off the race track toward the crowd and struck another vehicle, causing that vehicle to strike 33-year-old spectator Kadie Price of Pierson.

Price pushed her 2-year-old daughter to safety moments before she was hit, sparing the girl serious injury or worse, police said.

Price died shortly after the crash. An investigation is underway.
