2 Year Old Remains Hospitalized Following Fatal Accident

A follow up to Friday's fatal crash near Frenship High School, a two-year-old injured in the crash remained hospitalized Saturday evening.  A family member tells NewsChannel 11 he has two broken legs, and a fractured skull.  She says he is improving, and they were able to move him out of intensive care Saturday morning.  His mother and younger sibling have both been released from the hospital.

47-year-old Louis Jacopetti died in the crash.  The department of public safety is still working to determine the cause. 

"There was alcohol found in one of the vehicles, but we have not tied that in as a possible contributing factor at this time," Department of Public Safety Corporal John Gonzalez said. 

Gonzalez says speed, and a lack of stop signs may also have contributed to the crash. We'll keep you updated on this investigation.
