Car Accident Sends Mother and Child to Hospital

WILMINGTON -- An accident on Market Street sends a mother, and her young child to the hospital.

The pair were sent to New Hanover Regional Medical Center for precautionary reasons, after the Chevy Blazer they were riding in flipped over.

The Blazer tried to cut across Market from 12th Street, when it was struck by a Toyota Camry.

Both the mother, and the young child had their seat belts on, and police say the child's safety seat may have saved it's life.

The intersection of 12th Street. and Market is right turn only, so police are citing the driver of the Blazer with failure to obey a traffic device.
