5-Year-Old Boy Hospitalized after Distracted Driving Accident near Park Avenue

 
SANTA CRUZ COUNTY, CA (September 18, 2018) – On Tuesday morning, a 5-year-old boy was thrown from a vehicle during a rollover crash on Highway 1.
 
According to the California Highway Patrol, the crash occurred at 9:12 AM, near the Park Avenue exit. A 40-year-old Watsonville woman was driving a 2000 Toyota Tacoma southbound on the freeway when she lost control of the vehicle and struck the center divider.
 
Due to the impact of the collision, the pickup truck rolled several times, ejecting the young child onto the road. The woman admitted to using her cell phone before the accident happened. CHP disclosed that the boy was not properly fastened in a car seat at the time of the collision. He suffered major injuries and was rushed to the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center. There is no update on his current medical condition.
 
A section of the northbound and southbound lanes were shut down during the investigation and reopened at around 11:00 AM. No additional information has been released to the public at this time, as the investigation continues.
 
When behind the wheel of a vehicle, it is important to stay alert and aware. Do not participate in distracting activities, such as texting or driving. By driving defensively and paying attention to the road, dangerous accidents can be prevented.
