The Ozaukee County sheriff's Office says alcohol and drugs were not a factor, but they don't know any factors that led up to the crash.

"At this point we don't know what caused the crash. We don't know what other factors were involved," said Lt. Wayne Lambrecht, Ozaukee County Sheriff's Office.

The neighbor who called 911 says it can be hard to see the stop sign if the sun is a driver's eyes.

"Our recommendation is that people just be aware and drive safe," said Lt. Lambrecht.

Other neighbors near the crash told CBS 58 they're worried about the speed of the two roads at the intersection, and say they don't go on walks with their kids, and often hear honking horns and screeching tires.

"It is a 4 year old child, and it is something no one ever wants to go through, and it's definitely a difficult time for the family," said Lt. Lambrecht.

The sheriff's office says they have never worried about the intersection, but will now take a closer look after this tragic loss.

"That intersection does not has not historically been a problem for us. We will as we do in all crashes look at the intersection to determine if there's anything wrong with the intersection," said Lt. Lambrecht.
