Baby trapped in SUV after crash

AULT, Colo.(AP) ” The Colorado State Patrol says the woman driving a sport utility vehicle when it rolled over and trapped an infant in Weld County will face charges related to the crash.

Authorities say 23-year-old Cherub Acosta of Cheyenne, Wyo., was speeding and weaving through traffic when she lost control of a pickup truck Sunday evening and crashed into a ditch.

The accident happened at the intersection of U.S. 85 and Weld County Road 84 near Ault.

The baby was trapped in the vehicle for a time, but was extricated and taken to a hospital as a precaution.

A news release from the State Patrol said the infant was buckled in a car seat but wasn’t properly restrained.

Authorities say alcohol or drugs are suspected as contributing factors in the crash.
