Baby critical after Va. car crash

By Washington Post editors

An infant is in critical condition after the baby's mother gave birth prematurely following a serious traffic accident near Tysons Corner Center on last Thursday, the Washington Examiner reports.

The crash occurred when an ambulance struck a 2008 four-door Mazda that was turning onto Chain Bridge Road from the Tysons Corner Center near Tysons Boulevard about 4:15 p.m. Thursday Oct. 7, Fairfax County police said.

The driver of the Mazda, a 28-year-old woman who was nearly nine months pregnant, was taken to a hospital with injuries that were serious but not life threatening. She gave birth to twins prematurely at the hospital. While the babies initially appeared to be in good condition, police said Friday morning that one is now in critical condition.
