Toddler might not have been restrained in weekend accident

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A toddler was seriously injured in a west Lubbock crash on Sunday and police are investigating whether or not she was buckled up.

Police say the driver of a silver Chrysler ran a red light around 3:00 p.m. Sunday afternoon at Slide and the Marsha Sharp Freeway. It struck the maroon Ford Focus, which spun around and hit another vehicle.

EMS took two children from the Chrysler to Covenant Hospital. The front seat passenger, 12-year-old Marquise Nelson is in good condition while 2-year-old Giovanni Nelson remains in serious condition.

Police say there was a car seat in the vehicle and now they are trying to determine if she was properly restrained.
