LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - An afternoon accident along the Marsha Sharp Freeway injured 4 people Sunday including a 2-year old who remains in critical condition.

"The gray car was air born when I saw it. I thought it was going to land on top of my hood, but luckily it didn't," said Robert Ramos. A car wrecked into his new car around 3:00 p.m. Sunday afternoon, but that was not what concerned him. "There was a kid right there in the passengers side, and me and this other guy were trying to you know open the door, and we couldn't. The kid looked scared and stuff, so that's what we were worried about really," said Ramos. 

Two other cars involved in the wreck came out much worse than Ramos' car.  They were a silver car traveling North on Slide Road and a maroon car Westbound on the Martha Sharp Freeway Frontage Road. Accident investigators say it appears the woman driving the silver Chrysler ran the red light hitting the maroon Ford Focus and injuring all occupants in both cars.

EMS pulled 30-year old Monica Moreno from the silver car as well as 2 children who police believe belong to Moreno, 12-year old Marquise Nelson, and 2-year old Giovanni Nelson.

The driver of the maroon car, 21-year old Brett Jensen suffered serious injuries. All were transported to the hospital.

"We had different levels of injuries. The most serious being the 2-year old that was in the back of the silver car," said Sgt. John Hayes. 

Police say the child likely suffered some sort of head injury. None of the other victims injuries were life threatening.

Investigators have not determined if alcohol or the foggy weather played a role in the accident.
