A 2-year-old is in critical condition after a three-car crash on Apalachee Parkway Sunday evening.

The Florida Highway Patrol said on Sunday around 7:09 PM, troopers responded to a three-vehicle crash with serious bodily injury and roadblock on Apalachee Parkway.

Through an investigation, troopers learned that the first vehicle, driven by a 60-year-old man, was pulling out of the Dollar General onto Apalachee Parkway when a second vehicle crashed into the driver side of the first vehicle.

Troopers said a third car then came along and crashed into the back of the second vehicle.

The driver of the first vehicle, the 29-year-old driver of the second vehicle, and the 2-year-old passenger inside the second vehicle were all transported to Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare as a level 1 trauma alert.

The two adults in the crash sustained serious injuries while the child remains in critical condition.

FHP said the driver of the second vehicle and the 2-year-old were not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. The incident is still under active investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol.
