A speeding driver has left a three-day-old baby in critical condition after crashing into the vehicle of a couple on San Pablo Road South.
Report says the couple was heading home from the hospital with their newborn when the accident occurred. Authorities said, the accident happened on San Pablo Road South, near Mayo Hospital of Jacksonville in Atlantic Highlands. It was reported that this was where the allegedly reckless driver was driving beyond speed limit.
Eyewitnesses said, a woman and her husband and their two-day-old baby were on board on a Toyota Sienna. The man was driving home from the hospital in their vehicle when a speeding Chevrolet crashed into them.
The couple was not injured but the new baby was left in critical condition as a result of the impact of the accident, authorities said. Report says the baby boy was quickly rushed to the nearest hospital by JFRD for treatment. He is currently in the ICU.
The driver who was driving at a high rate of speed did not suffer any injuries. He was asked to perform a field sobriety test, which he passed. He has been taken into custody for questioning.
The couple is yet to file any complaints case against the driver and the accident in under investigation.
