BRONX, NEW YORK, NOVEMBER 25- A horrific crash that sent an SUV to flip over several times has injured five people, including two children.
Police were called to the Bruckner Expressway at Elder Avenue at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, November 22. Investigators say a 31 year-old woman lost control of a 2005 Ford Explorer that was traveling eastbound when it hit a guardrail and flipped over several times.
Police say an 11-year-old boy was ejected from the back of the vehicle and suffered a severe head injury. He was transported to Jacobi Hospital and was listed in critical condition.
Officials reported a second child was listed in serious, but stable condition.
The unidentified driver and two additional passengers, a 17- year-old female and a 57 year-old woman were also listed to be in stable condition at Jacobi Hospital.
No charges have been filed in the crash, however police continue to investigate its cause.
The site is a half-mile away from where rookie police officer Michael Williams was killed in September when the police van he was riding in overturned near Hunts Point Avenue.
