The baby is listed in critical condition with internal injuries.  Both children were restrained in car seats during the accident, according to reports.

Officials say the woman driving the Neon along with a 75-year-old man and a 75-year-old woman involved in the initial accident were was also taken to the Christiana with non-life threatening injuries.

Authorities closed Capital Trail in goth directions for about three hours while the investigation was underway.
