A child was sent to the hospital Tuesday morning with “traumatic injuries” in San Jose, CA due to a two car crash.
Two cars traveling in opposite directions near the corner of Lincoln and Franklin streets collided, with one car spinning out of control into the Carmelite Monastery wall.
When emergency EMS crews arrived at the scene of the accident, they reported finding a 4-year-old boy unconscious but they were able to resuscitate him. There are no reports of the injures to the other child involved and their current physical conditions are still unknown at this particular point in time.
The unnamed boy was transported to Valley Medical Center. Two unnamed women and a 10-year-old girl were also transported to area hospitals for treatment of injuries.
While this accident took place in San Jose, CA; Ohio has its own fair share of motor vehicle accidents involving children. In 2007 car accidents resulted in injuries to 9,159 children under 15 years old. To prevent such injuries to your children the best thing to do is to always buckle your seat belts and use proper safety seats. Children should also only ride in the back seat of the car to help prevent any major injuries if an accident should happen.
