Three children were in the back seat of Hey’s vehicle in child restraints. A girl riding in a carseat in the right rear was flown to St. Elizabeth with unknown injuries. The left rear passenger Ð a boy who was also in a car seat Ð was treated at GCMC for moderate injuries. A young girl in a booster seat in the middle backseat was uninjured. The children’s ages were not released and the hospitals were unable to confirm treatment.
