A 9-month-old boy is fighting for his life after being hurt in a five car crash Tuesday morning, California Highway Patrol officials are now saying.
The crash happened along westbound I-80, just east of Highway 65, around 8:11 a.m. Tuesday. CHP says that a Ford Explorer and Toyota Scion collided, then collided with three other cars. The boy was a passenger in the Toyota Scion.
CHP had said that the boy was taken to the UC Davis Medical Center and died from his injuries, but are now saying that the boy is actually listed in critical condition. His injuries are life-threatening, CHP notes.
Four others inside the Ford, including 4 and 7 year old girls, were taken to the Sutter Roseville Medical Center. The four are suffering from minor to moderate injuries.
Authorities do not believe that drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash. CHP is asking anyone who saw the crash to contact them at (916) 663-3344.
