BELLEVUE, Wis. — Police say a young boy who survived being thrown from a car in a weekend accident in Bellevue was not properly restrained.

Investigators say the 22-month-old child either wasn't properly restrained or was not restrained at all.

The crash happened Sunday afternoon on a ramp to westbound Wisconsin 172. The 23-year-old driver was thrown from the car and died.

Brown County sheriff's Capt. Randy Schultz tells Press-Gazette Media (http://gbpg.net/1n0jQIJ ) two child seats were found in the car and neither was properly fastened.

Schultz says high speed and failure to use a seat belt were factors in crash.

The boy was returned to his mother after being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
