BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Bakersfield police officers were dispatched to the intersection of Monterey Street and Tulare Street in east Bakersfield regarding a collision on Tuesday around 1:58 p.m.
When they got there, officers discovered that a 2001 green Dodge Neon traveling southbound on Tulare Street ran the stop sign directly into the path of a silver Lincoln Navigator that was traveling eastbound on Monterey Street.
The force of the collision caused the Neon to spin around and an improperly restrained two-year-old child was thrown from the vehicle.
The injured two-year-old was taken to a local hospital with moderate injuries and was later airlifted to Madera Children's Hospital for treatment.
Police say the driver of the Neon, 30-year-old Cameron Lail, suffered minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital.
Police say Lail will be cited for not having a driver's license and for improperly restraining the two-year-old child.
Police say the driver of the Navigator, 30-year-old David Perez, will be cited for no proof of insurance and improper child restraints for the children he was driving.
There were no other injuries, and alcohol and drugs do not appear to be a factor in this collision.
