ANTIOCH, CA (July 30, 2021) – Five children, including a 2-year-old, sustained injuries in a two-vehicle accident on Highway 4 in Antioch Thursday morning.

Firefighters arrived soon after and extricated the female driver who was trapped inside the Camry. Officers then requested an air ambulance to transport a 2-year-old child to a hospital who suffered a broken bone.
A ground ambulance took the other four children and the adult driver to the hospital with minor to major injuries.
The driver of the van was not injured.
