Infant ejected in Ogden collision; both drivers cited

OGDEN — An infant boy was in serious condition Thursday night after being ejected in a two vehicle collision on Sullivan Road.

At about 6:45 p.m., an SUV travelling westbound on Sullivan Road collided with a passenger car driving north on Quincy Avenue, knocking the SUV over on its side and ejecting the small boy, still lodged in his car seat. The infant sustained serious head injuries.

Two women and two other small children were in the SUV, but were not seriously hurt.

"The car seat wasn't properly secured," Ogden Police Lt. Kevin Cottrell told the Standard-Examiner.

Two women and a four-year-old boy were in the passenger car and were all treated for minor injuries.

Witnesses gave conflicting accounts about whether the driver of the SUV had obeyed the stop sign before crossing Quincy Avenue, Cottrell said. Regardless, he said, the woman failed to yield to the other vehicle. She was cited Thursday for failure to yield, a child restraint violation and a learner's permit violation.

The driver of the other car was also cited for inadequate child safety restraint.
