A 2-week-old boy died Monday from injuries he suffered in a car crash in Grand Prairie, police said.
Mohamed Mbaye was riding in a child safety seat in the back right seat of his mother’s car when the crash happened about 9:40 a.m., according to a police news release.
His mother, Sokhna Ghingue, 22, was driving west on Mayfield when she ran a red light at the frontage road of Texas 161.
Her 2012 Kia Rio was struck on the passenger side by a 2012 Dodge pickup, and then both vehicles crashed into a 2012 Toyota pickup that was stopped at the light, the news release said.
Mbaye, who was properly restrained in the safety seat, suffered critical injuries and was taken to Children’s Medical Center Dallas, where he died at 5:20 p.m.
Ghingue was taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, where she was treated and released.
There were no other serious injuries in the crash, the news release said. Police were still investigating.
