    A 5-month-old was among a group of siblings inside a minivan when it crashed overnight.

    Luckily the tot wasn’t seriously hurt when his mother’s minivan collided with a  sedan near where Pratt Street intersects with the Roosevelt Boulevard in the Frankford section of Philadelphia around 2 a.m.  Thursday.

    Police said no one was seriously hurt but the woman and her children were taken to the hospital for observation. They didn’t say how many kids were in the van.

    The impact of the wreck did damage to front of the car and sent the minivan up on the sidewalk in front of a nearby auto repair shop -- coming to rest up against a fire hydrant.

    The wreck caused police to block the outer lane of the Boulevard and Pratt Street as they investigated.

    No immediate word on what caused the wreck.
