5-month-old baby critically hurt after T-bone wreck in NW Atlanta

A two-car crash in northwest Atlanta has left multiple people injured, including a 5-month-old in critical condition, authorities said.

The crash happened shortly after 7:45 p.m. Tuesday on Northside Drive at 10th Street, Atlanta Fire Rescue said in a tweet.


The infant who was critically injured was taken to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston, Atlanta police told AJC.com. Police do not believe the child was “properly secured in a child safety seat,” resulting in the child’s injuries.

Police said a vehicle with four occupants, including the 5-month-old, failed to yield during a left turn onto 10th Street from Northside Drive. 

The car was then T-boned by a second vehicle, whose driver was not badly hurt and didn’t need to go to a hospital. No charges are expected against this driver, according to police.

The driver of the car that allegedly failed to yield was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, while a woman and 3-year-old were taken to Egleston along with the injured infant, police said.

Police told Channel 2 Action News they reviewed surveillance footage in the area to determine the cause of the crash. No other details were released.
