MCCURTAIN COUNTY, Okla. – A six-week-old baby has passed away after the car he was in crashed into a cow in southeast Oklahoma.
Just after 9:30 p.m. on May 1, Shawna Bridges, 29, was driving down Pine Creek County Rd. in McCurtain County with her four children when her vehicle struck a cow in the roadway.
After hitting the cow, officials say the vehicle ran off the road.
Bridges and three of her children, ages 2, 10, and 8, were treated and released for head injuries.
Her 6-week-old baby boy, Kingston, was transported by Air-Evac to Children’s Hospital in Dallas with head injuries.
Initially, the baby was listed in stable condition; however, a few hours later, officials say the boy succumbed to his injuries sustained in the accident.
Officials say seatbelts were in use by the driver and the two oldest children. Child restraints were in use by the infant and the 2-year-old.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the family.
