A toddler not in a child safety seat was hurt when the car he was riding in crashed and overturned along Interstate 8 near Jacumba Tuesday.
Five people were in a 2013 Dodge Avenger when it drifted off the edge of eastbound I-8 at approximately 7 a.m. Tuesday.
The vehicle hit several rocks and overturned.
California Highway Patrol officers say the toddler, described by officials as a 2-year-old boy, was in a seat belt but not in a child safety seat. He suffered major injuries and was rushed to Rady Children’s Hospital by ground ambulance.
An 11-month old boy also suffered minor injuries. He was buckled into a child safety seat, CHP officers said.
The driver and passenger, described as a man and woman in their early 20s from Ramona, were airlifted to Sharp Memorial Hospital with major injuries, CHP officers said.
Another passenger, described as a 45-year-old woman, was transported to Sharp Memorial with minor injuries.
The cause of the collision was still under investigation.
