CINCINNATI -- An infant suffered life-threatening injuries in a car crash Thursday, and two other children were hospitalized, according to police. 

Police said an adult and three children were in the backseat, and no one was wearing a seatbelt. 

A 22-year-old man was driving a 2011 Nissan Altima south on Winton Ridge Lane and was turning east onto Dutch Colony Road when he lost control and drove off the right side of the road, striking a tree, police said. 

A 21-year-old woman in the front passenger seat was extricated from the car, and she was transported to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center with minor injuries.

A 24-year-old woman was riding in the back of the car with three children. She was transported to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center with serious injuries. 

A 7-year-old boy and 2-year old girl suffered minor injuries and were listed in stable condition Thursday night at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. A 6-month old girl was listed in critical condition.

Police said excessive speed does not appear to be a factor in the crash, and it is not yet known whether the driver was impaired. 

Police asked anyone with information to call the Traffic Unit at 513-352-2514.
