6-month-old and 11-year-old in critical condition after Ridgeland car crash


JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – More than a day after a horrific accident in Ridgeland, Kimberly Montgomery sat near her two daughters at the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC). Both children were ejected from a vehicle and were being treated for their injuries.

Faith, 6-months-old, has two fractured legs, two broken ankles, broken ribs, a broken collar bone and multiple bruises and stitches.

Her sister, 11-year-old Kimyra, suffered a head injury and needed five staples. Her shoulders were scraped, along with her face, and her mouth is swollen.

Montgomery said she has a break in the lower part of her spine.

The crash happened at the intersection of County Line Road and State Street around 5:00 p.m. on Sunday. Montgomery said the crash was caused by a driver, who was speeding and ran a red light.

“That spin showed me that you can be paying attention, but the person that’s in front of you may not be because it was like they didn’t even see us,” said Montgomery.

Ridgeland police are investigating the crash.
