“There was a serious 2 car accident about 30 minutes ago [around 2:45pm] at GA and Shepherd. traffic on GA is being diverted. I didn’t see the impact, but I heard it, and then saw one of the cars spinning down the street (actually, being whipped around its trunk is more accurate). That car, a black sedan, had two women and two children in it, including a baby. The other car, a silver SUV, had one man in it. All of the bystanders were worried about everyone, but especially the children. If you could post anything you learn about how they are doing, that would be great. Props to the police too – they were on the scene in mere minutes – I was on the phone with 911 when the first car showed up.”

“They say the baby is alive. Car seat is on top of the car. Apparently 2 women were pretty badly injured.”
