LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Police are investigating an accident on Dixie Highway that critically injured a 10-month-old and two others Sunday afternoon.

Police say the accident happened in the 15000 block of Dixie Highway just after 3 p.m. when two vehicles collided.

According an LMPD spokesperson, the vehicle driven by a woman containing an infant was headed southbound on Dixie Highway. They say she failed to yield the right of way to make a left turn in front of another vehicle headed northbound.

Both drivers were transported to University Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The infant was transported to Kosair with critical injuries. Police could not determine the relationship between the infant and the driver.

Police would not rule out but are looking into the possibility if drugs and/or alcohol played a factor in the accident.
