A 5-year-old girl remains in critical condition after the car she was riding in was struck at a Champaign intersection on Monday morning.
According to police officials, the accident occurred at the intersection of Fourth Street and University Avenue when a 20-year-old driver struck an SUV. The impact of this crash caused the SUV to flip and roll into a third vehicle before coming to stop.
The 20 year-old female driver along with the two children riding in the SUV were transported to the hospital to be treated. The driver and a 2-year-old child were later released. No citations have been given at this time.
Car accidents can cause serious injury to all involved. Our thoughts are with the young child during her recovery.
